Talk by Eccleshall First Responder - Parish Room

The talk tonight was given by Martin Watson who has been a First Responder for 12 years. He had brought along a CPR manikin and a defibrillator machine. He demonstrated the use of both. He gave us many helpful bits of information on how to deal with a casualty. The most important suggestion to come out of the evening was “Don’t just stand there - DO SOMETHING!”. An excellent talk
Holy Trinity Christmas Fair
2nd December 2017
The TMF ran a Tombola stall as usual at the Christmas Fair. The afternoon prior to the event we put out the tables, arranged the prizes and put the tickets onto the prize and in the drum. On the day it was very hectic. People were buying tickets as quickly as we could sell them. Every time a prize was won the bell rang which in turn attracted even more customers.
A great event and made all the better by beating our record amount and taking in over £700. Well done all!
The location for the Christmas Lunch this year was
The Officers were re-elected.
