10th July

Responders are volunteer members of the community, trained by the Ambulance Service, to respond to emergency calls through the 999 system, in conjunction with the Ambulance Service. They provide immediate care to patients in their area and are mobilised to 999 calls by Ambulance Control. Responders are a part of, and live in, their local community, and can serve an area of approximately 3 mile radius of their base, which could be their home or place of work. This enables them to attend the scene of a medical emergency in a very short time, often arriving within a few minutes of the call and frequently whilst the caller is still on the phone. They are trained to provide Emergency Life Support and to treat patients suffering from a range of conditions. We are lucky to have a dedicated group of responders in Heathfield.

The Heathfield and Waldron Responders held their 3rd Charity Golf Day on Saturday June 16th at Horam Park Golf Club. The day was a huge success with 60 golfers turning up to play and raising a huge £1,095. The winning team were the Hacker Refs for the second year running.

There were individual prizes up for grabs on every hole, a set of clubs to be won and a fantastic signed cap. They are especially grateful to all of their event sponsors, without whom it would not be possible to have such great prizes every year. Linden Lodge Kennels and Cattery, Iremia Consulting, Larkspur Developments, Rushleigh Consulting, GB Golf Consultancy, Burlie Motors, Simon Briggs and Laura Parfitt. Horam Park Golf Club with their excellent clubhouse and 18 hole course, hosted the event.

They are already planning next year’s event which they want to make the biggest and best yet!
