Defibrillator Presentation. 19th May 2017 The 14th Defibrillator in this series of installations, was presented to March Community Centre upon Friday 19th May, 2017, by Rob Skoulding, the coordinator, to Francis Pepper representing M.C C. It is intended for use by any member of the Public, if needed. There are18 in this phase, and now14 are in cabinets. Overall 30 of these ‘life saving’ apparatus are located in March. Sadly there are still gaps in the coverage, the Gaul Rd and south of Estover Rd areas are priorities, as funds become available. The cost of each defibrillator is in the region of £1000, plus training. That is ably taken care of by Matt Brown, who trains London Fire Brigades, with installation, by Darren Biggs who donates his time and skills. Readers have the opportunity to contribute by donating their ‘blue’ chips given at the tills in Tesco, Hostmoor Avenue, into the collection point on the way to the Exit. These machines are for use by every Citizen, and not just for members of any particular club or association. Rob Skoulding paid tribute to the Rotary Club of March, without whose financial backing, and hands on assistance, this scheme would not have been viable. Photos Rob Skoulding, Francis Pepper.
