Thirty Lynsted residents attended a Heart Start training session on Saturday October 21, held in the Church.  We learnt what the signs are of cardiac arrest and how to carry out CPR with chest compressions and rescue breaths if someone has stopped breathing.  We were shown the use of a defibrillator like the one recently installed at the Black Lion.  The session also covered how to deal with choking and bleeding.  It was a highly instructive combination of theory with hands-on training using defib machines and dummies.  The course was over-subscribed, so we now have a waiting list for another session - if interested, let the Parish Clerk know.  The Parish Council's thanks go to Simon White, Heart Start Instructor, who gave up his time free of charge - but £300 was raised for the British Heart Foundation.
