EMERGENCY FIRST AID COURSE AT MELBURY.
An outstanding and very worthwhile evening and one that will be repeated in the future. Club member and first responder Geoff Hunt led the group and gave practical demonstrations and advice on a number of vital life saving skills and first aid procedures. The instructions were delivered in a way that were clear and concise and all the participants were able to practice all of the techniques demonstrated. I can say without any shadow of doubt that we all came away with new knowledge and skills and that should a situation ever arise either at Melbury or in our everyday life those of us that attended the course will have the confidence to help and be effective.
