DEFIBRILLATOR heart restarting machine. This is now stored at the Spar shop Edward Road for borrowing by group events. (A defibrillator was bought for use at events in Whitehead. The Spar shop in Edward Road is open long hours and appears to be the best place to store it.)
Training in use of the defibrillator is available. Speak to the Community Centre manager for more info.

Over the summer, the Presbyterian Church and the Church of Ireland have a weeklong youth event called "The Street”. Part of the program each year is community outreach. This is where the young people go out and do something on behalf on the local community. Usually they perform litter picks and do gardening for the elderly. This year they are hoping to do stuff that the community either needs or wants done.
Early days yet however, we were just wondering if there is anything that needs done, or any areas that any of the local groups could use a hand with?
Advance sees this as a good way of getting the youth integrated into the community and getting them skills and experience.
If you would like to get involved with them please phone David on 07534877610
