Shaftsbury Recreation Centre host to First Aid training


Community Walk Leaders gathered to take part in an exclusive First Aid course held at Shaftsbury Recreation Centre, Friday 22nd November 2013.

This half day event enabled participants to learn about the vital skills needed to deal with emergencies that may arise when out walking with their Community Group.

Claire Overend, Development Officer at Walking In Your Community commented "A valid First Aid qualification is an essential part of the Community Walk Leader training programme. It was great that Shaftsbury Recreation Centre was able to accommodate this course as it enabled 9 participants to become fully qualified Community Walk Leaders."
