The Farnham Walking Festival

Heartstart Farnham Lions: Walking from strength to strength

On Sunday 2nd June 2019, the final day of this year’s very successful Farnham Walking Festival, sixty people took part in the Farnham Lions Heartstart walks. Three groups of walkers set off from Gostrey Meadow and walked along the main roads of and into Farnham Town Centre to highlight the need for more Defibrillators in Farnham and better signage for those that already exist.  The walks, which were also in memory of Farnham Lion Keith Aston who had worked so hard to develop Heartstart Farnham Lions, ended back at Gostrey Meadow where the walkers and many others enjoyed  ‘Music in the Meadow’ and were able to enjoy a tea or coffee and a wide selection of cakes at the Farnham Town Council Tea Tent manned by members of the Farnham Lions and the Heartstart team.  There was also a Heartstart display where visitors were able to experience how to use a Defibrillator.

Farnham Lions, members of Heartstart, family and friends look forward to
participating in the Farnham Walking Festival on June 2nd 2019 in memory
of Lion Keith Aston, and in support of the Aston Defibrillator Fund (ADF)
and of raising awareness of Simple Life Saving Skills. Keith's motto was 
"Don't be a bystander", so we encourage all to join in. The ADF is
being set up to raise funds to provide essential maintenance for existing
defibrillators and place more defibrillators within Farnham and the surrounding villages. 

Please join us........

It is anticipated that there will be a number of walking groups under the title of SIMPLE SKILLS SAVE LIVES and that each group will end at Gostrey Meadows at approximately 2.45pm just in time for the first Music in The Meadow event of 2019. Heartstart Farnham Lions members will also be demonstrating CPR techniques at Gostrey Meadow and members of Farnham Lions will be providing the Charity Tea Tent as well. More details on the walks and how to join will follow soon.  So please do as Keith always suggested - get involved and "Don't be a bystander!"
