Unlock the Woodland Walk Gates?

Home » Newsroom » Unlock the Woodland Walk Gates?

I am concerned to hear of an instance that happened last week regarding accessibility to the woodland. A gentleman dog walker collapsed and needed urgent medical attention. Thanks to fellow dog walkers an ambulance was called.

Unfortunately the ambulance could not gain access because the gates were locked so ambulance staff had to attend on foot via the small gate with their required equipment. The time taken could have been critical since the patient had a very low pulse rate. ( one of the ladies who assisted just happened to be a retired nursing sister). The gentleman was transferred to the ambulance and taken to hospital where he was fitted with a pacemaker and has since made a good recovery. This could have been so different and brings into question should the gates be locked? The ambulance crew remarked that they expected any public amenity to be accessible and not locked.

The kindness of Tarvin people is once again highlighted by the actions of the 2 ladies who also took care of the patient's dog and telephoned his wife to say he was on his way to hospital with blue lights flashing!

Ed. Thanks to Doreen for highlighting this. We will wait to hear what the Woodland Trust say- what are your views?
