About the VETS System

The VETS system is under review as we need to recruit and train more people.  The Heart Beat Trust has not yet resumed training sessions due to Covid etc.. Helen Barker, the Parish Councillor responsible for the Defibrillator scheme, will take plans forward as soon as restrictions permit and we will post updates here in due course.
