A fitting tribute has been paid to a generous man - as a life saving piece of medical equipment was installed in his memory outside a community pub.

The Swan pub in Mill Lane, Clewer now has its own automated external defibrillator.

Swan supporter Dawn Chojnacki covered the cost of the installation in memory of her husband Adrian, who died suddenly in March.

Mr Chojnacki was a retired doctor who had suggested and championed the idea of getting a defibrillator for the Swan.

Staff at the Swan plan to hold training sessions there to enable the community to operate it safely with the support of Berkshire Ambulance Service.

A defibrillator can save a heart attack victim's life if operated properly by members of the public while waiting for paramedics to arrive.

The Swan pub itself was saved last year from permanent closure when members of the community banded together and took out a mortgage on it. It is planned to reopen as soon as the lockdown ban on public gatherings is lifted.

The Swan Defibrillator brings to 15 the number of external and 24/7 publicly accessible AEDs provided by Windsor Community Defibrillator Partnership in the centre of Windsor from a standing start in 2017 with another two ordered and waiting for homes.

Although training is planned to help familiarise people with AEDs, Mike Sells, project leader for WCDP, commented: "The great thing about these devices is that anyone can use them – no training is required and no harm can be done by using them.

"All you have to do is dial 999 and the emergency services will advise you where the nearest defibrillator is and give all the necessary guidance."
