RESIDENTS of Litton Cheney learnt some life-saving skills when they played host to one of the Royal Lifesaving Society’s community defibrillator workshops.

James Irvine and Paul Barker of the society provided a free workshop, covering management of unconscious adults, basic life support and the use of a defibrillator.

The Royal Lifesaving Society is the UK’s leading provider of water safety and drowning prevention education and delivers free workshops to communities and groups who may not have access to life-saving training.

Throughout 2018, the charity delivered numerous training events, including how to save a baby and child to groups across Bridport and the surrounding areas.
