TIBSHELF: Villagers support Community Save A Life Scheme

Tibshelf

There was a fantastic turn out for the first two public sessions of emergency life support training, delivered free of charge by the Community Save a Life Scheme.

The Community Save a Life Scheme is run by volunteers and aims to teach emergency life support skills including the recovery position, CPR, and dealing with choking and serious bleeds, to members of the public free of charge.

Twenty-three members of the public attended the training sessions in Tibshelf Village Hall on Saturday and a further 25 on the Wednesday in February. All those attending said they thoroughly enjoyed the training and now understood how the very simplest of skills can save lives. That is a further 48 people in Tibshelf who would now know what to do in the event of someone needing emergency life- saving skills.

The WI in Tibshelf have been championing this scheme and are happy to arrange for more courses to be held in the village should there be a demand.
