Defibrillator for Dorset!
I have recently been informed by the manager of the Sixpenny Handley farm estate that a good portion of the monies collected by CGI this summer will go towards a defibrillator (AED or Automated External Defibrillator) fund, the device to be kept in or nearby the local Post Office. This is exactly what I’ve been talking about… translating crop circles into something tangible, positive and practical for the local community. I said we would be very glad to collect additional monies to realise the purchase should the estate have another CC next season. For those who don’t know what a defibrillator is, it is a device to shock the heart out of spasm should anyone go into cardiac arrest. The main hospital is in Shaftsbury some distance away so early intervention like this usually makes all the difference between life and death. I feel very encouraged by this development as you can imagine. If people can equate CCs with something of real value rather than a negative they may be far more tolerant and things in the future could go much smoother.
