The community of Woodbury and Woodbury Salterton, Devon are raising funds to establish a Devon Air Ambulance night landing site next to Woodbury Tennis Club off Orchard Close, Woodbury.
Devon Air Ambulance, Woodbury Parish Council and the Tennis Club are working together to establish a community landing site for the benefit of the Parish.
The playing field next to the Tennis Club has been assessed by Devon Air Ambulance as offering an excellent site for this facility, with good access and providing a strategic point for patients to be conveyed to hospital and for the medical teams to be able to reach any patient in the Parish quickly.
The night landing site will need remotely controlled lighting, to be activated only when needed in an emergency. No other changes to the use or management of the site will be needed.
Over 46% of the project costs are already in place through a grant from Devon Air Ambulance.
We now really need the help to raise the total cost of £6,000 to get our community landing site operational as soon as possible. It will only be used on rare occasions and at night but enable a quicker response essential to save lives.
