I’ve been a member since 2002 and am a Past Secretary and President.

At the moment I’m our club’s team leader for teaching local school leavers in

Life Support Skills, something I find very rewarding.

It dovetails perfectly with another passion of mine–being Chairman of the Avon Valley Community First Responders Scheme, a support scheme for local first responders.

Community First Responders are volunteers trained to nationally recognised standards.

They come out for 999 calls and provide emergency medical treatment

before an ambulance

and paramedic crews arrive
