Last night we had our first team meeting since early summer. Lots to catch up on - training, equipment, awareness sessions, public access defibrillators, comms etc. I finally managed to get the whole team together for a photo. Apologies for the quality. I would like to thank Angela for bringing cakes to celebrate by birthday 🎂……^Rob
