There's good new for Audlem tonight with the launch of the new First Responders scheme. Four volunteers — Nikki Ball; Tim Ball; Jane Palin and Andy Roscoe-Icke — have completed their training and will be responding to those calls forwarded to them by the NWAS (North West Ambulance Service) to provide assistance to patients until an ambulance arrives.
Parish Councillor Mike Hill has led the drive to get a First Responder group up and running in Audlem. Thanks to his efforts, a car has been provided by Cheshire Constabulary and car servicing will be provided by James Gorse Motors in Wrenbury. A number of businesses have provided generous sponsorship — Muller Dairy UK Ltd in Market Drayton; local builder Mark Ellis; Morris Care, the operators of Corbrook Court and Audlem Parish Council. The equipment is provided by the NHS.
Other volunteers are still needed so, if you are interested, please contact Community Responder manager Robert Hussey on 0151 296 1931 or 07768 032737. Or contact Mike Hill on 01270 811843 or Audlem Online will forward any details you send to the webteam on to Mike.
