The Chirton Defibrillator was installed in May 2016 and fitted to the wall of the original school building by kind permission of Chirton C of E School at a cost of £ 2200. It was installed and connected free of charge by C.S.Electrical Engineers.


Funds where raised from kind donations of the villagers of Chirton and Conock and at an Apple Pie Contest at Pewsey Scout hall and in Pewsey itself, organised by Mr Nigel Lihou. Nigel has worked tirelessly in organising fund raising for many Defibrillators and his help is much appreciated and very welcome. The Parish Council contributed £ 500 and this was matched by a similar amount from the Area Board. It is hoped that fund raising will begin shortly for a Defibrillator for Conock.


A defibrillator is a device that gives a high energy electric shock to the heart through the chest wall to someone who iis in cardiac arrest.This high energy shock is called defibrillation, and it's an essential life saving step in the chain of survival. If you come across someone who has had a cardiac arrest, it’s vital to call 999 and start CPR. Then you should find out if there is a defibrillator nearby - ours is located on the front of the Old School House.

These defibrillators are often known as public access defibrillators (PAD) as anyone can use them in an emergency. You shouldn’t be afraid of using a defibrillator if someone has had a cardiac arrest.
