A defibrillator can be found at Boldre War Memorial Hall, located inside the main entrance. The emergency services have the key pad code in their records to allow for access 24x7.
Living in a rural location, the emergency services can take time to reach an incident so Boldre Parish Council have facilitated the provision of a defibrillator. This was funded by County Councillor Ken Thornber via a grant from Hampshire County Council. Whilst a number of locations were considered for this device, it was decided that Boldre War Memorial Hall was the most suitable location as it provides a secure location which is widely used by the community as a whole. With the kind agreement of the Boldre War Memorial Hall charity committee, the defibrillator was installed in the main entrance.
The council also organised a free training session for the local community to attend in order to understand how to operate the new device.
