Re: Portsmouth people..... can i hire your parking space ?

Re: Automated External Defibrillator bikepqcking version!

As someone who has a history of heart issues this is a good idea. Never realise they could be purchased.

Also good to know where the nearest is. Less than half a mile from home which is good to know.
