Annual inspection, awards ceremony and attending summer events keeps first aiders busy

IT has been a busy time for the Axminster branch of St John Ambulance.

Members have provided their first aid skills at a variety of events and also took part in their own awards ceremony and annual inspections.

The adult division was assessed by Antoinette Williams the county commissioner (youth) and Jenny Bennett the area president.

The evening consisted of a divisional parade by the members, followed by a presentation on the role of St John Ambulance, in Axminster, by Corporal Thomas Stuckey.

Long serving members Marc Bobrovitch and Derek Cowling received awards.

The Division was also pleased to welcome representatives from the Axminster Inner Wheel which has chosen St John Ambulance as its charity of the year.

The meeting ended with the presentation of long service awards.

Meanwhile County Commissioner Mrs Williams returned to inspect the Badger and Cadet divisions and present badge awards to the youngsters.

Amongst the recipients was Nikita Stuckey who received her “Super Badger” - the highest award obtainable by a Badger.
