Defibrillator unveiling

Following on from the wetland interpretation board inauguration the other day, FCF President Kate Parminter invited HDC cabinet deputy leader Councillor Jonathan Chowen to formally unveil the new 24-hour Public Access Defibrillation (PAD) site based on the outside of the farm’s Volunteer Centre.

This unit has been donated by the scheme though a donation by Gatwick Airport and South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SECAmb). Afterwards, Horsham Community Responders (HCR) team members Marc Harrold and Hilary Humphrey were kept busy explaining how easy it is to use a defibrillator and Marc proved this with a two-minute challenge to Kate Parminter.

In the lead up to the provision of the PAD, Horsham Community Responders also kindly put on an emergency first aid course for the Friends of Chesworth Farm.
