Marsh Community Forum are raising funds for a Community Public Access Defibrillator (cPAD) to be installed in the centre of Marsh. At the recent Huddersfield Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) Oktoberfest Beer Festival, this project was chosen as the Festival Charity, and the excellent sum of £307 was raised from donations from the general public attending the festival. John Williams, the Chair of the Oktoberfest Beer Festival Committee came along to the recent Marsh Community Forum meeting and presented the cheque to Mike Woodward, Chair of Marsh Community Forum.
