Community First Responder Group Boher, will run a CPR training session at Boher Community Centre on Saturday 20th August, 9:00am-12:00 noon. Training will be provided by Paul Earls & Ita Richardson. For volunteers, this will be a chance to refresh your CPR skills and to get in some practice. Come along at any time – it should take no longer than 1/2 hour of your time. In addition, people from the community are invited to learn how to do CPR.  Everyone is welcome – it is about people knowing what to do if they were faced with a situation at home, on a sports field etc. So, if you are not a volunteer, feel free to join this group at any time during the morning. Allow about 1/2 hour! Please let others know about this training – everyone is welcome.
