Ok only asked .

I wasn't having a dig.

The other thing to do is get the location of the equipment added to Google Maps. I just tried it and found the nearest one in Maps is in Romiley on the wall outside the Forum entrance. It shouldn't be too hard to get the Marple ones added.

It's frustrating though, have tried GoodSam Alerter and that doesn't have any Marple Defibs listed. Maybe will do something on the new site just for Marple.

Have been advised by Marple Firefighters that their Defib is now active as of today. It's on the front of the Fire Station.

Also learned that there is one at Marple Golf Club (open hours only) and there is to be a public access one installed at Brabyns Preparatory School soon.

I will add these to the list we have at the bottom of the Defib Appeal page and then look at putting them on a map.

That's now here: http://www.marple.website/community-projects/town-centre-defibrillator-appeal.html

We will have to look again at the best location for the Town Centre one to ensure we get the best coverage possible from the available Defibs.

An app can't just be created like that. It takes, planning, skills and time. This costs money or goodwill. Plus it needs to be updated regularly with any changes.

 It's far better to get existing apps updated with recent information. Someone's already done all the hard work and it will take a few moments to add any local equipment to an app's database.

There are a number of apps with this purpose already (nationwide coverage), such as Save-a-life, AED Locations and Nearest Defib, ready to download on the app store.

I tried several of those and none of them list any in Marple. On one the nearest was 15 miles away. I only tried the 3 or 4 top scoring Apps and in their reviews the main criticism was that they don't have very good coverage yet.

Not to take away from this specific scheme guys, but very shortly there will be a new Community Defib on the front of the fire station that will be accessible 24/7 via keypad lock box. Will this then mean that this defib will be a little close leaving less cover further up market street? Just wondering about best positioning?

We are now very pleased to announce support for the Marple Town Centre Defibrillator Appeal from Estate Agent Julian Wadden.


Julian Wadden already operate a scheme where 5% of commission on sales is donated to a fund that helps to purchase life-saving defibrillators for use in and around the local area. The seller is asked to choose who should receive the donation from the sale of their property, selecting from a list of pre-approved local beneficiaries.

JW has agreed to add the Marple Town Centre Defibrillator Appeal Maintenance to their list of approved beneficiaries that sellers can choose from, up to a maximum value of £630, which is equivalent to 5 years of maintenance at £126 PA. This is a fantastic offer for the Town Centre Defibrillator Appeal because contributions will boost Marple Civic Society's undertaking to pay for the maintenance and allow them to spend any funds they save on other important local projects.

The Appeal Team would like to thank Marple Area Committee, Marple Civic Society, GT Landscapes and Construction, The Marple Website, Stephanie Lorusso, Shop Local Club Card and Julian Wadden for their fantastic support of the Town Centre Defibrillator Project, which can now be installed as soon as a suitable location is finalised and agreed.

The full story has been updated here too: www.marple-uk.com/defibrillator

Do you know were it is going to be installed?

The plan is to put it close to the junction of Stockport Road and Hollins Lane. More details will be published when everything is confirmed.

We are delighted to advise that we have some amazing news on the Defibrillator Appeal!

Local lady Stephanie Lorusso (nee Shaw, of the Malcolm Shaw & Son Funeral Directors family) has generously donated the balance of £650 that was needed to purchase a defibrillator for Marple Town Centre. Stephanie says that her mother (Sheila Shaw) had a Cardiac Arrest a couple of years back on 2nd January, which she fortunately survived. Sheila then had to have a triple heart bypass last year, which went well, and she is back dancing and living a very active life now at the age of 80 years next September.  When Stephanie saw the Defibrillator Appeal on-line she says she had to contact us and do something as she had been thinking about buying or contributing to a defibrillator in the town centre already and this was the perfect opportunity.

So, this means that the Marple Town Centre Defibrillator project can now go ahead, which is fantastic news!

As far as the Defibrillator Appeal is concerned, it has been decided to continue raising funds for the immediate future to try and cover at least some of the ongoing maintenance costs of £126 PA. Although Marple Civic Society has pledged to pay for this, and of course will do so, if we can raise some extra money towards it then the society will be able to conserve their funds and do other things to benefit Marple with them.

So, if you would still like to be involved with the project and wish to make a contribution towards the running costs of the Marple Town Centre Defibrillator, please get in touch via defibrillator@marple-uk.com   

Do you know were it is going to be installed?
