Our new carpet appeal has hit the £600 target, just in time for Christmas!  It’s thanks to every Hub-user and supporter who has contributed to our honesty box, and it’s the best present we could have asked for.

This means that in the New Year we’ll not only have a reliable new heating system, but we’ll also have bright, cheerful new flooring in the upstairs activity rooms.

We’re closed to the public now for the Christmas break, but some regular sessions will be taking place in the Hub, including Beaufort Tutoring and NCT classes.  We’ll be back and open from Monday January 8th.

First Aid training

 

Would you know what to do in the event of your child or grandchild having an accident? Did you know that statistically many more children have accidents over the school summer holidays?

 

Today we’re launching a summer campaign to encourage as many parents and grandparents as possible to have some basic first aid training before the long summer school holidays start. We’re so passionate about this that we are going to subsidise the cost of places on first aid courses!

 

Why do we care so much? Before Sarah set up Busy Parents Network she was a solicitor for nearly 15 years helping families whose children were catastrophically injured either with brain injuries or spinal cord injuries as a result of accidents. Sarah knows that it can make a huge difference to a child’s long term outcome if there is even one person on the scene of an accident who knows even basic first aid.

 

So, we’ve teamed up with Mini First Aid to run a series of first aid classes during June and July. We’ve deliberately put them on at the weekends, evenings and during the day time to hopefully find a time to suit everyone.

 

And because we believe you are never too young to learn first aid skills, we’ve got a FREE course for pre-schoolers and a subsidised course for children aged 8-12 years. It is very empowering for children to know what to do if they or their siblings have an accident.

 

So, here’s how it works:-

 

  1. Select a date for a course (dates and times below)
  2. Phone or email Anna Ruffle of Mini First Aid on 07397 233245 or anna@minifirstaid.co.uk to book your place(s)
  3. You pay £10 for a child’s place or £15 for an adult place (normally £12 and £20)
  4. Turn up on the day at Bournville Community Hub to get skilled up!

 

The dates are:-

Wednesday 7th June – 7.30pm

 

Sunday 11th June       – 10am

 

Sunday 9th July          –  2.30pm. (Kids and adults classes running simulataneously)

 

Friday 14th July 10am – FREE 30 minute pre-school class

 

If there is sufficient demand, we can look at putting on additional classes.

 

So, don’t delay and book your place today! You could help to save a child’s life.
