Barmouth WI met in Parlwr Mawr at the Dragon Theatre at 7pm on Wednesday, 27 March.

Members enjoyed a most interesting and informative evening with Barmouth Community First Responders - CJ Roberts (Community First Responders Coordinator) Carys Jones (Community First Responder) and Avril Unsworth (Community Welfare Responder).

Their relaxed and friendly talk gave members a taste of what it was like to volunteer, train and provide the essential and often lifesaving treatment within our community before ambulance crews arrive on scene. They also gave a demonstration of CPR and using a defibrillator.

Our ladies were full of admiration at the total voluntary service they provide. If you would like more information, please go to
