Training and Development

Courses were provided by Pat Marshall Training and St John Ambulance and were made possible through funding received from South West Foundation and the Learning Curve/European Social Fund. 10 people were successful in completing Emergency First Aid and 12 people achieved the Food Safety Level 2 Award accreditation.
