The event will take place on Saturday, June 10 between 10am and 4pm on Bridge Street, in front of the Town Hall.

The charity is hoping to hear from local people interested in volunteering, with opportunities available for adult first aiders, Cadets (aged 10 to 17) and Badgers (aged seven to 10).

Visitors to the event can also learn some basic first aid techniques and there will plenty of chances to talk to existing volunteers about their work with the charity.
