Excellent "First Aid At Work" course on held on 3rd Feb.
Our first "First Aid At Work" course was held in the village hall. We had 13 attendees from the parish. Much fun was had by all, and much was learnt, and how important it is too. This is the start as we investigate the implementation of a Defibrillator scheme within the parish of Astley. We had to sit an exam at the end of the day, as this is a formal work qualification, and we all passed ! We hope to organise another course later in the year, so look out for notices when we organise this.
Call for photographs for this website.
This website will be much more fun and representative of the parish if we have some great photos on it by different peoples and on different topics ie Open Gardens, Village Hall events, Church events, photos specific to each hamlet etc. We cannot promise to show all, but we will use as many as we can. Thank you in advance for your offerings. For now please use the following email address for forwarding photos: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please forward any ideas via Contact . The more the merrier. We really want this to be the one stop site for Astley Parish.
