Next Defib Training Session Tuesday 29 July 2014

Defib Training has been arranged for Tuesday evening 29 July, 7 – 9 pm at the new Portsmouth Ambulance Station. 


There is no allocated parking as far as I know, but parking is much easier in the Industrial Park at this time of day so you should be able to park quite close to the Ambulance Station. 


If you didn’t attend last time, but would like to attend this time, you are very welcome.  I have asked our trainer Andy if he will cover basic CPR as well the defib training.


Whilst we do not charge for this training, donations are very welcome and will contribute towards the cost.


The address is:

Portsmouth Ambulance Station

Northarbour Rd




Please would you confirm to me ASAP if you wish to attend the session.


Many thanks for your support.

Many thanks to Cllr Keast - District Councillor for Waterlooville for the allocation of £610 towards the BodyFocus Support Group Transport Fund.  This money will pay for transport for people with mobility difficulties who do not have the use of a car and are not able to use public transport but who would like to attend exercise sessions to improve their mobility and quality of life.


If you do not have a car and are unable to use public transport to attend exercise sessions listed on this website, please get in touch.
