Defibrillator, Heart Start & CPR - FreeTraining

Whilst defibrillators are easy to use we think that everyone should be better prepared in the event of an emergency.
Anyone can be trained, just let us know if you are interested.
We think it’s a great way to bring the community together and help to raise awareness of sudden cardiac arrest.
The free training sessions will be held at Horbury Working Members Club, Cluntergate, Horbury, Wakefield, West Yorkshire, WF45DB.
We will let you know when the training sessions are arranged.
Please use this website's "Contact Us" link so we may give you further details via email.

As a result of a Senior Resident in Croftlands who was frightened to sit out on her patio due to possibility of slipping on the moss and debris, we got a request for help with clearing the patio. I mentioned to Tracey (PCSO) @ Brickhouse YC that we had this resident needing help and she immediately said leave it to us the youths @ (Brickhouse YC). So after arranging to visit the premise on Sunday 8th July along with 1 Youth (Olivia) who is a leader at the YC they set about clearing the patio to make it fit for the resident to sit out. The pictures show how bad the patio was before the work was completed, and the satisfaction of the resident on completion of the work . As a result of this excellent response the Manager (Karen) at Croftlands which is an Independent Living Scheme run by WDH has now had several more requests which Brickhouse YC are happy to take on. It shows how younger people in the community can integrate and help older people and they must feel proud of what they have achieved.

Well done Olivia and thanks for Tracey's help in organising this.

 

An Update: Dated 22 July 2018 (2 weeks after the patio clean up)

The Rotary Club of Horbury and Ossett Phoenix work very closely with the Tree Wardens Voluntary Group and their Chairman Roger Parkinson, based at The Rose Garden Nursery, Thornes Park, and they have helped us a lot with our projects in the local community, including refurbishments and installation of benches, tree planting, bird boxes and other essential work.
After our Community Chair (Nick Bardsley) mentioned the work the Brickhouse Youth Club of Ossett had done for Pat Roberts at Croftlands (as seen here), Roger has sent us the 2 planters for the patio. We are sure Pat will enjoy sitting out and seeing the fantastic colours in the plants which will make a huge difference.
