Community Defibrillators For All In Stapleford
Stapleford has for several years had one Community Defibrillator which is installed outside The Meeting Place on Nottingham Road. This was put up with organisation from the local Police.
Stapleford Community Group have worked with the Coop Store on Hickings Lane, Stapleford and recently installed another one.
Now Stapleford Councillors John McGrath and Richard MacRae are working with Broxtowe Borough Council to have more installed. 3 to be exact.
One will hopefully be installed around Toton Lane near the Petrol Station or The Magpie Pub.
One will hopefully be installed on or near Moorbridge Lane.
And a third will be installed outside The West End Pub on Derby Road. **Fundraising is currently taking place for this one.
Once all the Community Defibrillators are installed Stapleford will possibly be the first Town In Broxtowe Borough and possibly Nottinghamshire where every resident of a town is in within minutes of a life saving Community Defibrillator.
This is an amazing achievement and something the two Councillors are very proud of being part of.
**Fundraising is currently taking place for this one.
