First Aid Course
On 12th May ten of us attended a First Aid Course delivered by the First Aid Training Cooperative. It was a intensive, informative and enjoyable 7 hours.
A great time was had at our Burns Night at the Village Hall. Thanks to everyone who contributed to the food and entertainment and everyone who came for making it such a good evening. Here’s David MacKenzie giving us The Immortal Memory!
Drimnin Village Hall is pleased to announce that we have been awarded £3159 from the SSEN Resilient Communities Fund to provide the community with a defibrillator, two emergency generators, first aid kit and first aid course. The village hall will provide funds for secure storage for the generators, cable and fuel cans and attendees of the first aid course will make a contribution towards the cost of the course.
Our aim is to enable the Village Hall to provide an emergency response kit for the community in the event of acute health issues and loss of power. We are very grateful to SSEN for enabling us to do this.
We will begin putting the funds into action in the new year.
Undimmed in Drimnin
Residents and visitors alike brought their own sunshine to the Drimnin Village Hall Summer BBQ on July 29th, where they danced the night away to the musical talents of Derek Hamilton and Richard Hughes. Sally Semple kept the flame alight with tasty BBQ snacks and David Campbell made sure our spirits were undampened by the drizzle as he served drinks under the Village Hall’s marquee. Committee Chairman Davy Shaw announced the dazzling array of 22 raffle prizes, with the Sea Kayaking Trip (from Sea Kayak Mull) going to Charlotte Cole, Lunch at The Whitehouse Restaurant going to Jo Gale and Isle of Mull Ice Cream Voucher going to Lucy Glaister. The BBQ made over £900 for the Village Hall. Thanks to all who came and all who generously donated raffle prizes.
