Learning some basic First Aid is really important and could save a life. We are delighted to welcome Daisy First Aid to run a 2 hour First Aid course for the Ark Baby and Toddler group.
This 2 hour class is perfect for anyone that has a baby or child and wants to learn some basic first aid skills without being overwhelmed with technical information.
The session empowers parents/expectant parents/grandparents and carers and gives you the confidence to act fast in an emergency. The class is relaxed and fun, suitable for pregnancy and babies under 12 months are welcome too.
The class covers:
What to do in an emergency & when to get help
CPR & recovery positions
head injuries
febrile seizures
broken bones
bleeding & bandaging

Refreshments will be available before the class. I hope to see you there! Linda.

The Diocesan Synod is currently renewing its membership for a new 3-year term.  If you are interested, please contact Richard for details.

The Synod meets three times a year on Saturday mornings, twice in person and once online. The meetings have interesting visiting speakers addressing key issues the church faces and provide the opportunity to give feedback to the Diocese about the reality of parish life.

Richard adds, “I have been a member of Diocesan Synod for the past eight years and I throughly recommend it.”
