This June, with Covid-19 restrictions still firmly in place, our Junior Coach Freddie Kemp arranged a two-day First Aid course to be run at the Club for 10 people. Freddie himself needed it to gain his Level 2 Coaching certificate, but we also had seven other club members giving up their weekend to learn all about First Aid. That included four of our Juniors, who help out with coaching already.
The course was run by Sea Cadet Stuart Spencer, who had paddling experience himself. Despite it being one of the first courses he’d run since the Covid-19 restrictions had been relaxed, he was very clear on procedure on how to keep everyone safely distanced.
An intensive weekend, well worth the time. And it’s good to know that we have another seven highly competent First Aiders at the Club.
