Midgham is proud to have a DEFIBRILATOR sited at the end of Birds Lane

Thanks to a great team effort from the Parish Councillors, the generosity of a benefactor who wishes to remain anonymous and also thanks to Mr Tom Porteous for providing the power to the unit, Midgham now boasts its own defibrillator. Whilst we all hope it will never be needed, it gives peace of mind to residents of the village knowing it’s there just in case.
