At the invitation of Jason Amyes, Unit Manager of the St John Ambulance Centre in Oswestry, Veronica and I visited the centre to witness an evening training session for cadets. We saw classes teaching first aid and deaf & blind signage, as well as a session devoted to identifying risk. We were extremely impressed with the dedication and enthusiasm of both the cadets and instructors. The St John Ambulance performs a very valuable service in training the cadets in all aspects of first aid – such skills will be of real benefit to the cadets quite apart from the good that they do for the wider community. At the end of the evening, I was delighted to be able to present a number of proficiency awards for skills earned by the cadets.
