Pengwern's new lifesaving machine goes live

* The new Pengwern defibrillator.

* The official handover takes place outside the 
community centre wit Tomos Hughes of Achub Calon Y Dyffryn and Cllr Grindley.

* Children are shown how to bake their own bread.

The Pengwern area's new defibrillator went live at the Community Centre yesterday morning (Saturday).

The installation of the lifesaving piece of equipment was made possible by a large donation of £1,200 from the Rotary Cub of Llangollen,

Llangollen firefighters also raised money by doing a car wash, Llangollen Pantomime Group chipped in with £200 and a private donation helped hit the target.

Tomos Hughes from Achub Calon Y Dyffryn worked with the fundraising group and joined them yesterday to arrange for the machine to go live.

There will be training arranged for residents and children to learn basic first aid and how a defibrillator works in the near future.

The committee and supporters of The Friends of Pengwern arranged refreshments for everyone there.

Sheena Grindley, a town councillor and spokesperson for the fundraisers, said: "This was a wonderful community effort and a huge thank you to all involved.

"We also arranged for the children to make bread around the fire and they also enjoyed toasted marshmallows and a guided tour of the fire engine courtesy of our local firefighters.

"It's great to have this lifesaving facility in the middle of the largest estate in Llangollen."
