Stone Lawn Tennis and Squash club serves up a new Public
Access Defibrillator for the Community.
Stone Tennis club and Squash Club is not just a sports club but is the hub for many
local clubs and organisations. All of these organisations have assisted the club
members fund raising activities in raising over £1500 to purchase and install a public
access defibrillator at the club. Thanks go to the Hull and Company Limited
electrical wiring and Halo Plastering and Rendering Services for installing the
temperature control cabinet. Also for donations from Stone Lions £200, Slimming
World £110, Stone Master Marathon Runners £200, Stone Tennis Club and Squash
Club Bridge Club £50 and Stone Golf Club Steward £180.
The defibrillator was purchased at a reduced cost to the club through a scheme run by
the British Heart Foundation. A training session will be organised by the West
Midlands Ambulance service for members of the club and associated organisations.
The Defibrillator will then become available for general use. If you think you need the
defibrillator situated at the club ring 999 and give the operator the number on the
outside of the locked yellow box the defibrillator is stored in. The operator will then
give you the keypad code to open the yellow box so you can take the defibrillator to
Defibrillators are designed to be used by people with no medical experience.
