An old telephone kiosk could prove to be a potential life-saver after being given a new role.

The Len Pick Trust and Bourne Town Council have joined together to install a defibrillator in a decommissioned town centre telephone kiosk.

The kiosk can be found in North Street, near the Old Town Hall.

“We are delighted to have been able to work with the town council to utilise this redundant kiosk to house the defibrillator," said the trust's chairman David Bower.

"The trust has long had a policy of providing these machines in our area of benefit and when the town clerk told us that the kiosk would be coming available we jumped at the chance of using such a prominent position.

"Anyone can use the machine in an emergency, as it gives clear spoken instructions at all times so you don’t need training to use it.

"The defibrillator detects the heart’s rhythm and it won’t deliver a shock unless one is needed."

Mayor of Bourne, Paul Fellows, added: “Once again, we are extremely grateful to Len Pick and his legacy for its help in providing this facility for the benefit of all."
