It is now fixed and ready for use on the front wall of the Parish Rooms adjacent Holy Trinity Church. The unit and its weatherproof box have been funded by our own Santas Sleigh collections, a donation from the Eccleshall Show committee, a matching grant from Rotary Foundation, British Heart Foundation, assistance of Eccleshall First Responders and the cooperation of the Parish Rooms Committee
