24th Feb 2020: Delighted today to have attended the launch of three more public access defibrillators (PAD) in Farnham. All three were funded by the staff of Abbeyfield Wey Valley Care homes hard work, with donations from St Andrews Lodge, the 1st Farnham Girls Brigade and the ADF. ICS property services kindly installed all three without charge. Also we would say a huge thanks to all at Abbeyfield Wey Valley and all the businesses that supported their raffles, car washes and many more activity days to raise the funds. All the defibrillators are positioned on the outside of the three Abbeyfield homes in Farnham giving full 24/7 access to the community. Well done Abbeyfield Wey Valley.
16 Feb 2020 - The second defibrillator funded by The Alfred Pub and their charity quiz night in the autumn of 2019 has now been installed outside the school entrance at Folly Hill School on Coniston Drive.
We are delighted to confirm the new defibrillator funded by T Baker of Wrecclesham has now been installed outside the Rangers office at the entrance to Farnham Park, opposite the cricket ground. We are hgrateful not only to T Baker but also for the assistanvce from Waverkey Borough Council, the Friends of Farnham Park and members of the sports council who initiated the appeal with the Farnham Herald. A perfect example of the real community project that this needs to be.
After the appeal in the Farnham Herald just a few weeks ago, we are delighted to announce the new defibrillator was funded by the Dempster Trust and has alraedy been installed at 1 Waverley Lane, right by Farnham Station. Pictured are Jpn Curtis, Chairman on the Dempster Trust, Marion Parnell from Hones Business Park and keith harris, one of the ADF Trustees. We are very grateful to the Demptsre Trust for stepping up to fund this new installation and helping to support the local; community with this life saving piece of equipment.
