First Aid

Noel will begin by sharing with us who Hato Hone St John are and what it does out in the community, apart from the flashing lights and sirens. Then he will deliver the 3 Steps for Life (3SFL) programme to the group. This is a lesson on how to call 111, do CPR and use an AED. Following this, members are welcome to stay and have a go themselves.

Gear Geeks, or What’s in my Pack?

Gear for the outdoors has developed and changed incredibly over the last few years… be it stronger, lighter, more innovative or more fit for purpose. Within our club we have a wealth of knowledge and passion.

Bring it along to share …

Finding something waterproof is a common conversation for those passionate about the outdoors. Nigel Barrett will also be joining us to share about Paramo Products.

Summer Snippets

Everyone has been out and about, and a few have had their arms twisted to give a short talk on what they did over the holidays. Each presentation will be short and undoubtably interesting, so do come along for a 7pm BBQ, a drink,biscuit, entertainment and some comaraderie.
