Denaby Main Ambulance Class

On Monday evening the opening of that Denaby branch of St John Ambulance Associatifion was held in the New school Denaby. There was a good attendance. Mr Chambers, the manager of the colliery, was appointed Chairman. He said he was very pleased to see such a good attendance and hoped they would take an interest in ambulance work, as it was very essential when an accident occurred that someone could render “first aid.”

Drs. Sykes and Martin stated the objects of the Association, and impressed on intending members the necessity of attending the whole of the lectures, that nothing should be lacking on their part, and that, when the examination took place, they would have the honour to receive the certificate of proficiency.

A vote of thanks brought the meeting to a close.
