Lifesaving defibrillators installed at Alfreton House

Leisure Centre gifts equipment to Town Council.

The Town Council was approached at the end of 2016 as potential recipients of a defibrillator from fund raising at Alfreton Leisure Centre.  The equipment, which is there for anyone to use on someone in cardiac arrest, has been installed in the grounds of Alfreton House, and is easily identifiable by the bright yellow box.

Fitting a defibrillator and housing unit costs around £1,500, the installation costs have been met by the Town Council and ongoing maintenance and checks of the unit will be the responsibility of the Town Council.  Shown with the Town Mayor, Councillor John Walker are Michael Conway who a made significant personal contribution to its purchase, due to having first-hand experience of requiring  a defibrillator whilst having a cardiac arrest at Alfreton Leisure Centre and Manager Peter Sharkey.  Hector the Hound is the Leisure Centre’s mascot and he stole the opportunity to grab the attention of children, so they too become aware of what a defibrillator is and how it can be used to save lives.

Town Mayor, Councillor John Walker said ‘The Council welcome the gift from the Leisure Centre and were happy to support their suggestion of installing the defibrillator at the opposite end of Town to them.  This is a vital piece of equipment which, you would hope is never required but when needed has the proven potential of saving lives.    It will benefit the residents and visitors to Alfreton.

In an emergency, people phone 999 and the ambulance service will give them the access code to open the box housing the defibrillator.

An ambulance is then dispatched and the operator provides guidance on what to do. This is all clearly explained on the front of the box.

The staff and members of Alfreton Town Council have a training session in early July on the correct use of the equipment and maintenance checks.

The history of Alfreton is destined for the internet.
Helping the project will be a £750 grant from Alfreton Town Council.
It was handed over by the Mayor, councillor John Walker, to Alfreton and District Heritage Trust. The cash will be spent on MODES, which provides a compact database, software and training.
This will allow the volunteers to catalogue all their historical items and put them on websites, where interested people will be able to find them with the wriggle of a computer mouse.
Councillor Walker feels there is plenty of civic pride and that it is vital for future generations to preserve the fast-changing character of the town.
"Alfreton is completely different from when I came to work here. Buildings have disappeared, rows of traditional houses have disappeared.
"There used to be an annual carnival in the thirties and that was a highlight for people at the time.
"There used to be four collieries within one mile of Alfreton town centre and there used to be a lot of knitwear made. Things change and people are interested in history," he added.
The trust has a heritage centre in the former chapel in Alfreton Cemetery off Rodgers Lane.
