There have now been two very successful first aid sessions, with extremely positive feedback. The sessions, run by the Red Cross, last
two hours and cover dealing with scenarios that we are likely to come across, for instance when someone has fallen. We were briefed on, for
instance, when an ambulance needs to be called and simple measures we could take till it came. I have now arranged another session on Wednesday
10 October from 10.00-12.00. The session will take place at the Agbrigg and Belle Vue community center, Montague Street, Wakefield WF1 5BB.
If you would like to attend this session, please contact me on 01924 258234. Numbers are limited to fifteen.

There is no meeting of the garden group in August and the next meeting will be at Sandal library on 10 September from 2.00-4.00pm. Before that, a visit is planned to Brodsworth hall and gardens on 4 September. The gardens have apparently been restored to “their full Victorian splendour” and we are hoping for an informative visit. If anyone wishes to join us, please contact me.
We had a successful trip to the interesting Jungle Garden in Leeds in June. It is small but the owner has packed so much in! We were lucky we went when we did, as he told us that he is not going to open the garden next year. He said that he spent every spare minute in the garden (which we could well believe) and I got the impression that maybe his wife had put her foot down!
We then went to Roundhay Park, which was obviously short of water like our gardens and the sun was very hot. Nevertheless we had a most enjoyable visit.
