Hempstead Defibrillator
what3words location - ///ribcage.eyeful.slopes

Pammie Wallis had the original idea for a village defibrillator and competed in the Prudential 100 cycling event to raise funds.
A big thank you is due to all those people who sponsored or donated. Significant contributions were made by the Village Hall Committee, the Parochial Church Council and the Parish Council.

The defibrillator is housed in a cabinet inside the old telephone kiosk near the Village Hall on The Street, Hempstead. The Ambulance Service has confirmed registration of the machine and signage has been added to the kiosk.

The Zoll AED Plus Defibrillator is ready for use in an emergency.
