A NEW lifesaving defibrillator has been installed outside Goldthorpe Library.

Both the Dearne North and Dearne South ward alliances teamed up to fund the equipment which is ready to use from this week.

A select number of staff from Goldthorpe Library will volunteer as the guardians of the defibrillator.

A spokesperson for the Dearne Area Team said: “This is great news. A complete joint project that will benefit all in our community.”
