Lifesaving defib installed in Pittville Park thanks to Newland Homes

Cheltenham Lions Club has presented housing developer Newland Homes with a certificate of appreciation, to say thank you for the company's financial donation which has helped to install a much-needed defibrillator in Pittville Park.

The Cheltenham Lions Club has tirelessly fundraised to convert a disused phone kiosk into a public access defibrillator in the ever popular and historic Pittville Park, which is moments from Newland Homes' latest development on Prestbury Road, called No. 102 Prestbury Road.

Presenting the certificate on behalf of the Lions, president Mike Clark said: "In the event of a cardiac arrest an individual needs immediate attention from this type of equipment to greatly enhance their chances of survival. No time can be wasted, and this usually means treatment is needed before an ambulance has time to get to the scene.

"The new defib has a high standard of audio / video instructions to make it useable by members of the local community, meaning that help can be given quickly. We give thanks to Newland Homes and all the other organisations who have made this possible."

Charlotte Hayes-Holgate from Newland Homes, who received the certificate, added: "Pittville Park is a short walk from No. 102 Prestbury Road and we know how important the park is for the Cheltenham community.

"As a local resident, I personally feel reassured that the Defib is available should it be needed in an emergency and we're pleased to be able to support the local community in providing such a vital resource."

Just two, three-bedroom homes remain at the bespoke development of contemporary homes at No. 102 Prestbury Road, within easy walking distance of Cheltenham town centre as well as Pittville Park.

Having experienced phenomenal demand, the home used as the marketing suite and show home are now for sale. Both properties include many upgrades, the latter with window treatments, flooring, light fittings, landscaped gardens and much more.

No. 102 Prestbury Road benefits from a Superfast Fibre Broadband connection with at least two data sockets within the home and car charging points for hybrid or fully electric cars pre-wired for customers to fit and take advantage of the Government grant.

Priced from £399,000 for a three-bedroom home with three parking spaces, those purchasing now will benefit from the current stamp duty holiday on homes up to the value of £500,000.

Charlotte and her colleagues will be offering tailor-made tours of Newland Homes' development at No. 102 Prestbury Road from 11am to 5pm, seven days a week.
