chairman Alan Bodicoat.
The £1,700 cost of buying and installing the life-saving machine was shared between the club and the Friends of Llangollen Health Centre.
The socially-distanced installation ceremony yesterday morning was attended by officials of both local organisations.
David Ensor, secretary of the bowling club, said: "This was a joint venture by our members and the Friends and is a very valuable addition to both Plas Newydd and the whole town.
"It started off with a £500 legacy left by Phil Williams, of Watkin & Williams, which could only be used for a good purpose such as this.
"Further fundraising was then done towards the final cost of buying and installing the machine."
He added: "Apart from benefiting around 60 members of the bowling club it will also be added the list of local defibrillators kept by the the ambulance service which will also initially maintain the machine.
"A number of our club members have received training on how to use properly it."
