The Woodborough Web

Welcome to the February 2020 Edition

A couple of new items appear in our pages this month.

First of all I was contacted by Jane Carter who commented on last month’s editorial (which urged readers to get involved with new activities in 2020) and asked if I would be interested in details of the local St John Ambulance branch. We’ve all seen members of the SJA at concerts and sporting events, providing a valuable first aid service for anyone who might need it.

Well, perhaps it will be news to you to find out that youngsters can join from the age of 7, learning potentially life-saving skills and having a good time with their friends.

Adults are equally welcome to learn and possibly use these valuable first aid skills.

If you need more information, be sure to see Jane’s article on page 7.

Another activity that was new to me was the “Little Swimmers” classes at Calverton Leisure Centre. Organised by Notts County Council and Notts Children & Families Partnership, they’re just the thing for youngsters under 5 years to have fun with family and friends, and learn this valuable skill at the same time – full details on page 1.
