About the Project
The community will have ready access to life saving equipment. The remaining areas to be covered include an industrial estate, new housing, a scout hut and a nursery. The route to and from our busy railway station also comes within this area. Visitors to the town who come to walk will also benefit.
About the Charity
Whitchurch Association is a community association that covers Whitchurch and local villages. As well as running the community centre, it is responsible for providing facilities and social activities that enhance the physical and mental well being of the community, including the town website. Our business plan includes continuing the roll out of defibrillators in the town. One has already been moved to an external site, one has been installed in the community centre, training has been provided in their use and CPR techniques and two more are in the pipeline. We have identified how existing and planned defibrillators cover the town and have identified locations for two more units. Accreditation as a Walkers are Welcome town encourages more visitors engaging in exercise who could benefit.
