Heart Matters - learning the basics of CPR and using a defibrillator

Chobham Parish Council with the help of Surrey Fire and Rescue is running free sessions on the basics of CPR and using a defibrillator. The planned date is Friday 6th April. The training lasts about an hour.

When someone suffers a cardiac arrest, giving CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) to keep blood pumping round the body could be a life saver.

Used in conjunction with a defibrillator to give a high energy electric shock to the heart through the chest wall, would give an even better chance.

Chobham has two community defibrillators at the fire station and at the Parish Pavilion on Chobham Recreation Ground.

If you would be interested in joining a session please email the parish administrator, Jennifer Britt on admin@chobhamparishcouncil.org or call 01276 856633, so we can keep you updated.

Walk this way - for a game of football

Walking Football, an adapted but equally fun form of the beautiful game, is coming to Chobham in January - just in time to coincide with the new year’s refreshed enthusiasm for keeping fit.

The new Friday lunchtime club is being promoted, in conjunction with the Surrey FA, by Surrey Heath Borough Council and the Chobham Recreation Ground Charitable Trust, which owns Chobham’s all-weather-surface football pitch.

Sessions will start at Chobham Rec on Friday 5th January, costing £2 for the hour-long session. For the first eight weeks, players will benefit from coaching from an FA coach, learning the skills of walking football to share with participants who join later.


Aimed particularly at the over-50s, this sport has seen an explosion in popularity, encouraging people, who may have thought their football-playing days were over, back into the game.

Designed to promote cardiovascular fitness whilst producing the least stress on the body, it is a great way to keep fit, even for those who have been told to ‘slow down’.

To find out more, call Craig Alford at Surrey Heath Borough Council, on 01276 707422.
