A number of residents have asked the Parish Council to consider the installation of a debrillator in the village, something which a number of local parishes have already done in their own villages. The Parish Council has previously considered such an installation and undertaken research to assess costs. In principle, the Parish Council has agreed that a defbrillator would be an asset for the community. However, the big stumbling block has been finding a location which is a suitable for the equipment. Chelford is problematic because of the way the village has developed over time, leading to a rather elongated settlement, with an unevenly distributed population. Clearly, that is likely to change as new developments are sited in a more concentrated area. However, whatever the location, it is important that the equipment can be easily accessed by a many residents as possible and within a short time.
The Parish Council is keen to seek the views of residents regarding a suitable location for a defibrillator. If you wish to offer a suggestion please email the Clerk, Dr. Elizabeth Maddock at:
