First Aid Training Update

Branch Training Activities Kev’s reputation must be spreading. Last night we had 19 members eager to brush up on their first aid skills. I’m sure there were even a couple of new jokes in this week’s presentation. Next Thursday will be the last of this set of lectures which will bring together everything we’ve been learning and give us the chance to simulate some incidents. We’ll then have a break for a week before beginning the O2 course.

Happy New Year Everyone Considering how cold, dark and wet it was last night we had a reasonable and boisterous turn out for our first meeting of 2012, with 17 members and 3 guests, including one try diver. We’re hoping that talk of Kevin’s doo dah, Eoin’s penchant for wearing women’s clothing and Joe’s suggestion that he would wear a Rah Rah skirt to show his support for Eoin in New Zealand will not have frightened the try diver away.
