A SECOND Rotary Club is being created in Weston-super-Mare with the aim of buying more defibrillators for the town.
Ric Canham, who is a member of the Wrington Vale Rotary Club, is setting up the new group.
He said some people are not able to attend the current Weston Rotary Club because it meets on Friday lunchtimes.
The existing club is supportive of a second group being created.
Mr Canham said: “We want to attract people who cannot get to the club. It will be something more relaxed where people can get together after work.”

Rotary supports a number of international causes, such as the eradication of the polio disease, as well as a number of local projects.
Mr Canham has decided getting more potentially life-saving defibrillators for Weston would be a good project for the new group to cut its teeth on.
