New Public Access Defibrillator in Southchurch Park

On Sunday 4th December 2022, we officially opened the public access defibrillator that has been placed on the pavilion at Southend on Sea and EMT Cricket Club in Southchurch Park.

The facility is in memory of the late John Wilding, father of our supporter Julia Wilding.

Julia fundraised and personally donated the majority of the funds required to establish this facility which will make the park a safer place for it’s users.

We would like to thank Julia, The Cricket Club, Southend Council, James Duddridge MP and SADS UK for their help in bringing this project to conclusion.
