Live-saving equipment has been installed at Sutton Bridge Golf Club.

Members of South Lincs Environmental Group (SLEG) in conjunction with a British Heart Foundation grant funded a new defibrillator for the parish.

It is at the club in New Road and is available for golf club members as well as the general public.

Chairman of the golf club Richard Kitchener thanked the British Heart Foundation representative Roger Williamson and golf club member Richard Morley for their work involved with the installation of the defibrillator, which is a potential life-saver.

SLEG raised money in the 1990s when the group ran the very popular country fayre.

As promised by the group, the money they raised is being spent on good causes.

Over the years, the group has donated to funds both locally and internationally.

These include the tsunami appeal, a new lightning conductor for the parish church after the original one was stolen, and a wheelchair for a young lady in Long Sutton, to name a few.

The group stays active, making comments on important planning applications and fighting any development that members deem would be detrimental to residents’ quality of life.

Jenny and Tom Rowe, who were among the founder members of SLEG, last year received a county council award in recognition of their voluntary service to the village.
