A defibrillator has been installed at a children’s centre in Weston.

The Friends of Ashcombe Children’s Centre has been raising money to benefit everyone who uses the building.

The children’s centre, in Stepping Stone Walk, shares a building with the nursery, Springboard Opportunity Group and Ashcombe Primary School’s reception classes.

The Friends worked with the school’s Parent-Teacher Association to raise money for a defibrillator by holding raffles, cake stalls and various events.

Rebecca Price, an early years worker at the children’s centre, said: “The defibrillator is mounted within Ashcombe School’s reception and anyone 
in the local community can utilise this resource during the opening hours of the school 7am-6.30pm.”

Anyone interested in volunteering at the centre can email her at rebecca.price2@n-somerset.gov.uk
