Community Focused & Team Effort

Laura and Linda Wyke and Philip Knott together with Sally at Leo Farm in Benthall, Shropshire.

Benthall is a small rural village, near Broseley, which lies on the right bank of the Severn River facing the town of Ironbridge. The village is home to about 300 residents, most of whom are elderly, and the area gets a lot of visitors at all times of the year thanks to the beautiful @BenthallNT, a National Trust property nearby. The area also attracts walkers, cyclists and runners who have over 40 routes in the area to choose from according to @ordnancesurvey.

Leo Farm, located in the centre of the village, is also a Caravan and Motorhome Club Certificated Location, which accepts just five caravans or motorhomes and is for Club Members only.

Our decision to donate an AED to the village was an easy one to make and installing it turned into a community project. A ‘trench’ party was formed to install the electrics to the AED just outside Leo Farm in the centre of the village. The digging party included Nigel Wyke, Nick Downes (seen in the second photo) and his sister Myra with biscuits supplied by Laura Wyke.  Mike McGowan from Graeburn Electrics kindly installed the AED. According to Sally “It was a real community effort” and we couldn’t be happier that they have received one of our AED’s.
