The people of Stotfold are to benefit from a new defibrillator, donated by Baldock Rotary Club.

The defibrillator has been installed outside the Stotfold Town Council offices at the Greenacre Centre off Valerian Way.

Baldock Rotary president Mike Williams handed over the life-saving device to Stotfold mayor Alan Cooper, who thanked him for the donation – saying that although he hoped it would never have to be used, it was an invaluable community asset.

Rotary district governor Chalmers Cursley told how the defibrillator project had been established to celebrate the centenary of the Rotary Foundation, the worldwide Rotary charity, and thanked project manager Paul Denton for his work leading the project in Herts, Beds and Bucks.

The defibrillator is available for use 24 hours a day.
