Pupils from Cross Ash School have been busy designing posters advertising a newly installed defibrillator, which is on the wall by the school entrance.

With major support from the British Heart Foundation, and local fundraising, the project is providing three new defibrillators across Llangattock Vibon Avel, the others being at Skenfrith village hall and Maypole old phone box.

They are all publicly available for anyone in a cardiac emergency, day or night.

The project has also trained 100 people on how to use the life-saving machines and give CPR, in a course approved by Welsh Ambulance.

Winning entries were announced in school assembly by Tom Pitts-Tucker, secretary of the Village Life Community Project.

Tom said it was a real privilege to work with the pupils at Cross Ash School and their efforts were greatly appreciated by everyone involved in the project.

More sessions are available locally – ring 01600 228957 or email [email protected] for more information.
