Thanks to a donation from a private charitable organisation, a small group of men and women from the woodwork club at the Heathcote Community House have created a new cabinet for the Barrack Reserve defibrillator unit.
Woodwork club members Ross Jeavons and Kevin Bell presented Heathcote Football Netball Club president Craig Guy with the cabinet last Thursday at the club’s workshop in Hospital St.
Mr Guy said he was pleased to accept the cabinet on behalf of the Heathcote football, netball and cricket clubs.
‘‘The defibrillator was purchased through a combined fundraising effort with the Heathcote Cricket Club and it will be placed in the foyer at the hall for emergencies at the complex,’’ Mr Guy said.
‘‘It was bought from St John’s Ambulance and they will provide the training.
‘‘We’re organising a class that everyone is welcome to come along to because the more people who know how to use it, the better.’’
Woodwork group and community house life member Ross Jeavons said the group’s members were proud to be able to build the cabinet for the defibrillator, and would also install it at Barrack Reserve, but welcomed anybody with an interest in woodwork to join the group.
‘‘We’ve been operating as a group for about 25 years now and though we used to be called the Men’s Shed, it’s not really a group just for men,’’ Mr Jeavons said.
‘‘We also have ladies who are members and we sometimes have the kids come down from the school, so anyone is welcome.’’
