Joining forces to provide a life-saving device...

24th of August, 2020

Jumping at the prospect of this community project, the local council, hospital and nursing home all got together to provide a life-saving public defibrillator site in Euxton.

The Millennium Green, run by Euxton Council, is a popular public park in Euxton, fronting Euxton Hall Hospital, with Euxton Park Care Home just behind it.

The park welcomes walkers all year round with it having a good perimeter path to walk on in all weathers. Its many visitors include residents of the care home, visitors to the hospital, residents, dog walkers, wheelchair users and many others just enjoying the attractive site. Euxton Council has provided a number of the ‘defibs’ at key locations around the village and knew the Millennium Green was another crucial site to give access to vital life-saving equipment.

Euxton Council sourced the box, defib and electrics, the Euxton Park Care Home supplied the electricity feed and Euxton Hall Hospital contributed to the whole project.

Thank you to the three Euxton organisations for working together to provide this new site.
