Thanks to the efforts of local resident Lara Sussman (who is keen to point out that it was a joint community effort with funding coming from both private individuals and the Seaview Regatta) there is now a defibrillator situated on the toilet block – managed by the parish council – at Seagrove Bay.
Lara approached the council with the proposal of having a defibrillator situated at the popular spot and the council happily resolved to have the device on the block and keep it maintained on an ongoing basis. Thanks also to Clean Wight Cleaning http://www.cleanwightcleaning.co.uk/ who have agreed to perform the daily visual inspections to ensure that the device is ready for use. The defibrillator has been registered with ‘The Circuit’ https://www.thecircuit.uk/ and as a result the ambulance service will be able to direct people to it in an emergency.
If you find yourself in an emergency situation at Seagrove Bay where the defibrillator could help, dial 999 or 112 and follow the instructions provided.
