Pathhead receives donation towards new defibrillator from Muir Homes

Pathhead in Midlothian will soon have another defibrillator after Muir Homes donated £500 towards the life-saving equipment.

The village already has two of the devices placed at opposite ends of the village at the bowling club and the village hall.

However, Pathhead & District Community Association is raising funds for another and has asked local businesses to chip in. The position of the new defibrillator is yet to be decided but will ensure there are ample available should they ever need to be used.

To ensure the defibrillators are in workable condition they are kept within secure, heated boxes, with access codes given by the 999 operator should the need arise.

Muir Homes is currently building their West Path development in Pathhead, a residential project located in the village adjacent to Tynewater Primary School. Comprising 43 homes with a diverse mix of three, four, and five bedrooms, including affordable housing options, the residences are conveniently located for commuters heading to Edinburgh.

Gayle Scott recently received the cheque on behalf of Pathhead & District Community Association and said: “We are over the moon with this generous donation of £500 that perhaps one day might help to save a life in the village.”

Fraser Stangoe, site manager for Muir Homes at the West Path, commented: “We are pleased to contribute to such a worthwhile cause and work with the local community to deliver this life-saving device for Pathhead.

“Defibrillators like this one might just save a life one day. It’s really reassuring to see so many popping up across the country.

“We want to enhance the local community and create positive change with our development and this donation is an important part of that.”
