To join L.I.V.E.S. First Respond.ers
NORTH SOMERCOTES L.I.V.E.S. FIRST RESPONSE GROUP A.G.M.
The A.G.M. of the First Response group was held on 16th January. After ten years, Anne Empringham resigned as co-ordinator and Martin Teal took over the position. Tracey Paine was re-elected as treasurer. We would like to thank the following people for their kind donations received during 2011:
Mr Mather, Mr Bell x 2, Conoco Phillips, Mrs Williams, Mr & Mrs Parrish, Erica Downs and the fundraisers at Lakeside Park, McColls Stores, Millsons Butchers, Joyce Blades, Marian Libell and Jo Kenney. A special thanks to Ray and Ann Wright who decorated their cabin at Lakeside Park at Christmas and invited the local children to visit ‘Santa’s Holiday Home in the Woods’ and donated all the money raised to LIVES.
The group are extremely grateful for any donations as the cost of operating is about £2000 per annum. A few members of the group are beginning to feel their age and new, younger, fitter members are needed. Could you help? Do you want to do something for your community? No qualifications are required as full training will be given. Anyone interested in becoming a First Responder should contact Martin on 01507 358233 or just go along to any of the meetings/training evenings which are held on the third Monday of every month at 7pm at the Fire Station.
