Defibrillator Dedication

We dedicated our defibrillator to Adrian Chojnacki, one of our Weekday Warriors. Unfortunately he passed away unexpectedly back in March.

Adrian was a keen supporter of the pub getting a defribillator which could then be used by the pub, the school and the wider community. His wife - Dawn - paid for its's installation.

The family attended the dedication and said a few words to some of Adrian's friends who had gathered to pay tribute. Richard Allen also said a few kind words about Adrian's contribution to The Swan.

Adrian was a dedicated husband, father, grandfather, friend and Weekday Warrior. We will remember you fondly sir.

Here are some photos of the man himself. A true legend.
