Talk by First Aid Workers

On Thursday 9th February members were given an interesting talk about first aid, which included staying safe on the farm. Sam and Stella, from First Aid For Life, talked to members about scenarios where accidents could occur and situations where treatment was necessary. They showed members how they should deal with these situations including demonstrating the recovery position and CPR, as well as describing the use of a defibrillator- which is a device used to deliver a therapeutic dose of electrical energy to a heart which is not functioning correctly.

The evening was very interesting and educational, many thanks to Sam and Stella.

Members enjoyed an evening at Trethorne for this week’s club meeting. Everyone put their energy into producing strikes and spares to try to top the score board. A special mention must be given to George Merritt for his ‘creative’ techniques!

Jeremy Blake gained the top spot for the boys and Hannah Coles for the girls; well done for producing very impressive scores!
