Defibrillator Training August 8th 2018

The Club is about to purchase a defibrillator and on 8 August the Red Cross will be running a one-hour training course at the Club covering use of the machine and other related first aid matters.. It will be held in the downstairs room at 5.30 p.m.  There is no charge and we are looking for volunteers from across all club drives so that there will always be someone on hand who can use the machine immediately. Reportedly the defibrillator is very simple to use.

Please add your name to the list on the coffee table.  Thanks.

Facilities for the Disabled and Gentlemen's Cloakroom

The conversion of the downstairs gents to a disabled cubicle is underway. The plumber is currently working on the gents cloakroom conversion and will be fitting in the work around other jobs.
