Defibrillator session postponed

defib We are sorry to say our planned defibrillator training session on 29 March has been cancelled but we are hoping to reschedule later on in the year.

Coach Becca writes: “We were planning to run a family CPR and defibrillator training day on Sunday 29 March supported by Keep the Beats.

“This was to offer training to our local community and also to raise money towards a defibrillator at Buckley Girls Gymnastics Club in Gwernaffield.

“We will be running the day later in the year but we need to get a defibrillator as soon as possible.”

Here’s a link to make a donation to the appeal.

Reducing the risk

We recommend following the information on the Public Health Wales website regarding its coronavirus action plan.

It has some specific advice for parents and carers.

British Gymnastics is also providing regular updates.

All our classes are on this weekend as normal and we’ll be encouraging additional handwashing.
