Diggerland with Spice Time Credits and Arches Local

Thank you to all the volunteers who have given their time helping in our community.

Each volunteer was rewarded with Time Credits as a way of saying thank you! Which they then exchanged for tickets to attend a day at Diggerland.

On arrival we were greeted by Jonny from Spice Time Credits and we had a photo opportunity once inside the park.

Families got to enjoy many of the rides and drives available including skyshuttle, mini diggers, dumper trucks, giant dirt truckers, go-karts and dodgems and many more!

                                    

First Aid @ the Arches

The course comprised of two days of training. The first day comprised of a question and answer workshop as well as talking about personal experiences. We talked about what should be included in a basic first aid kit and used our knowledge to see what we knew! The outcomes were very impressive.

The second day was hands-on practical with the use of a dummy to practice CPR as well as a simulated choking scenario. We also administered bandages as well as learning about the different medical equipment we may come across when working with adults and children. This included EPI-pens, asthma inhalers and diabetic insulin pens, just to name a few.
