It was handed over by rotary president Paul Honney to rugby club chairman Fraser Brooks this week at the Park Avenue venue.

The defibrillator, a device that gives a high energy electric shock to the heart to someone who is in cardiac arrest, was previously installed at Eastbourne Railway Station, which has taken possession of a new device.

Rotarian Peter Nash arranged for the machine to be passed on to the club.
