Munslow Parish Council Contributor


Munslow Parish Council are delighted to report that a defibrillator has been installed in Munslow Square, it is attached to the entrance to The Old School. The defibrillator (AED) and cabinet were donated to the Parish Council by The Henry Angell-James Memorial Trust whose aim is to buy as many AED’s as possible and to install them across the West Midlands and beyond. Henry Angell-James suffered a fatal cardiac arrest on his regular train journey home from Birmingham to Shrewsbury. He was only 54. The trust was set up in his memory.

There are more than 30,000 cardiac arrests in the UK each year and the overall survival rate is just 1 in 10. Every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces a victim’s survival rate by 7 – 10%. If an AED is used within 3-5 minutes of a cardiac arrest survival rates will jump from 6% to 74%. The AED cabinet is locked but you will be informed of the code when you contact emergency services and advised of the nearest AED to your location.

The Memorial Trust relies on donations to be able to provide the AED’s, if you wish to donate please go to the website: where you can donate from as little as £5.
