The Town Council is appealing to local businesses to support a Community Defibrillator in Potter Street.
The Community Defibrillator, which will provide a potentially life-saving community facility, will be housed in the red telephone box in Potter Street at the top of Devoils Lane. This will be refurbished and re-purposed by the Town Council and BT have confirmed that it is available. The refurbished box will also provide a bright and colourful focal point in the centre of Town.
The Council is seeking one or more sponsors for the defibrillator itself which costs £2,500 including fitting. The Council is also seeking one or more sponsors to cover the annual maintenance costs of £500 per year approximately. The Council will acknowledge any sponsorship received on its website and any business or individual donating £200 or more will be listed on a plaque to be fitted in the box, for the lifetime of the machine purchased.
If you or your business wish to contribute please contact the Council on 01279 715000.
