Valeport Sponsorship Provides Coast Path Defibrillator for Walkers

As reported recently in the Dartmouth Chronicle, Valeport sponsorship has helped provide a fully automated defibrillator to be located at the Froward Point National Coastwatch station near Kingswear in Devon.

Froward Point is an isolated area a mile from the nearest road.

The adjacent South West Coast Path can be challenging for unwary visitors and the Coastwatch station has previously helped walkers in difficulties.

At the suggestion of watchkeepers a project team was set up by Froward Point to consider how the care of walkers could be improved.

Expert advice was sought from Justin Sharples of the South Western Ambulance Service Trust, who gave freely of his time, and the defibrillator is now available while the station is open.


The defibrillator was presented to the station manager of NCI Froward Point, Stuart Rostron, by Valeport Chairman Charles Quartley.

Charles regularly sails out of the River Dart and his yacht “Impi” is a familiar sight to the watchkeepers at NCI Froward Point. Valeport has also provided sponsorship for the 2017 calendar which is now available for sale.
