First-aid fun: life-saving skills for children at Wanstead House


Children are invited to learn life-saving skills next month, with two first-aid courses to be held at Wanstead House.

Making use of fake blood and music, the sessions – which take place on 1 and 22 August from 10.30am (£19.50) – will cover, among other subjects, choking, CPR and the recovery position. “The course is aimed at children aged four to 13 years. All get to use a training defibrillator and administer a pretend electric shock,” said a spokesperson for course administrators Butterfly First Aid.
