First Aid Course - Learn to be a Life Saver!
23 July 2022

All those who attended the First Aid course we hosted in 2017 will remember how good it was - and how much we all learned. By popular demand, we're planning to run another one this summer. You'll learn to save a life with CPR, use a defibrillator, and take the lead in case of an emergency - plus much more.

Time, place and date will be fixed and confirmed once we have definite numbers - so please sign up now and make it a successful day with a strong cohort. You can email or call or text the Parish Clerk direct on 07599 249962
