Training: Neil Maher with one of the town’s defibrillators

PEOPLE in Westhoughton are being encouraged to step forward and learn how to save a life.
The call is part of a project to ensure that every part of the town has an accessible defibrillator for use in the event of someone having a cardiac arrest.
Town councillor Neil Maher is leading the campaign, which has seen it team up with North West Ambulance to provide two free training courses. Neil, who had a 20-year-long career in the ambulance service, said: “By knowing how to use a defibrillator effectively, you could become a life saver.”
The sessions in the Carnegie Hall will take place on January 30 at 7pm and February 3 at 2pm. To sign up contact town clerk Pauline Rowley on 07921 862603.
