There will be another free First Aid course for boaters on Saturday 5th March at 1pm to 2.30pm at Bathampton Village Hall (by the shops). The course is run by the Red Cross. Tea, coffee, juice and biscuits will be provided. The course has been organised by the Travelling Community Support Service at Julian House.
