A popular pub in Stoke Poges has raised £1,250 towards a piece of life saving equipment for the village.

The team at The Fox and Pheasant in Gerrards Cross Road hosted regular quiz nights and raffles - even pledging one hours pay each to help pay for a new defibrillator to be installed outside the pub.

They drummed up support from local businesses as well via their social media to buy the device, which can be used by members of the public to keep someone who is having a heart attack alive while waiting for paramedics to arrive.

Terry Rigg, general manager of The Fox and Pheasant said: “I feel incredibly strongly about supporting our local community and when we heard Stoke Poges needed a second defibrillator, my team and I couldn't wait to help."

Beaconsfield MP Joy Morrissey came along to unveil the defibrillator and enjoy a pint of Greene King IPA.
