The village of Brimington is a safer place after 12 members of the local air training corps gained their Heart Start and Youth First Aid qualifications.

John Hardie of Training Direct in Eckington gave up some of his own time in order to get as many cadets as possible through the qualification over the past few weeks.

“I was only to pleased to come and help out with that cadet,” said John who will be returning to 1082 (Brimington and District) Squadron in the new year to train several members of squadron staff.
