Emergency Life Support Courses at St George’s

St George’s has recently installed a defibrillator at St George’s Centre.
We are trying to publicise its availability as much as possible, and, in accordance with Heartstart Thatcham, the charity which jointly funded the defilbrillator, we will be running courses in Emergency Life Support.
The first course will take place on Monday 3rd July at 7pm in the Large Meeting Room at St George’s and will last approximately one hour.  There are 18 spaces available on the course, and other courses can be arranged in the future if needed.   If you would be interested in attending this training course, or a later one, please contact the church office.
