Our September social was a picnic in the park at Childers Museum. There were 19 members attending. The Museum was open and manned by volunteers who were most obliging in showing us around the area, which included four buildings with lots to look at and inspect.

Our Guest Speaker for this meeting was our Chairman Terry, who gave a most informative talk on first aid, in particular the changes in applying resuscitation. Also once resuscitation has started you have a duty of care to continue. There is no need for mouth to mouth but depressions to the chest are 100 beats a minute.
