Twelve members of Wigton Motor Club attended a first aid at work course at the club headquarters, the Motor House, April 23. 

Former paramedic and ambulance crew trainer David Watt shared his knowledge and experiences gained during 35 years as ambulance crew to the event in a relaxed and informative manner.

A spokesperson from Wigton Motor Club said: "The course covered the full range of first aid at work topics giving attendees a comprehensive understanding of how to deal with any situation they might come across not only in the motorsport environment but also in everyday life.

"Practical sessions covered patient management, resuscitation and defibrillator use while demonstrations by David showed in detail how to deal with many different scenarios with real life examples of situations that David had encountered in the ambulance service."

The Wigton Motor Club announced late last year that they had a number of events planned for the 2022 calender.
