Fresh Air and Fun in Portishead in Christmas Week

Want Some Fresh Air and Family Fun Over Christmas?

bluetree christmas treeYou may know that BlueTree is the tech part of the Visit Portishead partnership.

This Christmas, Visit Portishead needs help with one project and wants to promote another. The first is a crucial community resource that everyone should know about, the second is a bit of fun for all the family, a free-to-enter competition, with lots of fresh air and great prizes.

So gather your families, get out around Portishead, and use up those Christmas calories!

Portishead Lions Public Access Defibrillator Project

You will have noticed some of the green defibrillators popping up around the town. They don’t just “pop up” of course. A lot of hard work goes on behind the scenes.

In fact,twenty-six devices, available 24/7, are now distributed in and around Portishead, most of them provided by the Portishead Lions project. A still-growing resource, they’re known as PADs, Public Access Defibrillators, and AEDs, Automated External Defibrillators.

Now, if you need one, you’re going to be in a hurry. The quickest way to find one is to dial 999 and the operator will direct you. However, if you’re familiar with their locations, you can start running in the right direction whilst dialling, and save valuable seconds.

There’s a new defibrillator¬†map on Visit Portishead. They want to make sure the map is correct and complete, so they need people to test it. If you’re ever near one of them, please will you spare a minute to check the map is correct?

  • does it it take you to the correct place?
  • can you improve the directions?
  • can you take a more useful photo?

Twenty photographs of things around the town, and a question or two about each one. The aim is to get residents, new and old, young and old, to explore places they haven’t been before. It runs until midnight on New Year’s Day, so there’s plenty of time.
