Walton Parish Council has funded the purchase of two defibrillators for our parish.
One defibrilator is located in Lower Walton and the other is in Higher Walton. This page has been created to enable residents to become familiar with the use of defibrillators, and includes some links to useful resources, including training videos.
In Lower Walton the defibrillator is located at The Stag pub on the side wall towards the One Stop shop (see pictures)
In Higher Walton, the defibrillator is located on the right hand side of the Walton Arms pub (see pictures)
We are very grateful to the owners of both The Stag and the Walton Arms for offering their premises for the installation of this life saving equipment.
