People in Gedney, Gedney Drove End and Gedney Dyke can find out more about dementia and how to save lives at an event next month.

Gedney Parish Council is hosting a presentation on defibrillators and dementia awareness at Gedney Dyke Village Hall on Thursday, September 21, at 7pm.

Graeme Capps, a retained firefighter and LIVES First Responder from Holbeach, will give a short talk about the use of defibrillators, followed by a presentation about dementia by Karen Johnson, community development officer for South Holland District Council.

Coun Ian Field, chairman of Gedney Parish Council, said: “Defibrillators have been installed at all of our village halls by kind permission of all three hall committees.

“So we have come up with the idea of having a defibrillator familiarisation evening and, on the back of that, a training event on dementia as well.”

For more details and to book a place, call parish clerk Jane Ripley on 01945 700268.
