Shockingly Good News for Carluke Men’s Shed

Tom Kennedy (Treasurer) was delighted to announce to members at last Friday’s meeting on 6th August that Carluke Men’s Shed (CMS) had been successful in their application for a free defibrillator from St Andrews First Aid.

The defibrillator (which normally costs around £1500) is being supplied free of charge. However, as the unit is not new, it will require new pads/ electrodes and battery (which will last for 4 years) at a cost to the shed of £117.60.

Staff from Andrew’s first aid will provide Training in the use of the defibrillator this Friday 13th August from 1300 at the weekly meeting of CMS at Carluke Leisure Centre. 

So that this life saving kit will be always ready and accessible by the public 24/7, members will also be discussing fundraising for the purchase of a dedicated cabinet for the defibrillator. It is proposed that the defibrillator and cabinet be mounted outside the CMS cabins within High Mill Community Growing and Learning Garden in Chapel Street.

Tom extends an open invitation to anyone in the Carluke Parish who wishes to find out more about this vital equipment. 

If you would like to come along to this Friday’s CMS meeting, please contact Tom by phoning him on 07763 876084 so he can let staff at Carluke Leisure Centre know of possible numbers and discuss with them arrangements to ensure that safe protocols for the meeting are in place.
