Life-saving training is available in Portishead thanks to a childcare business.

The Nursery, in Combe Road, is running evening and weekend first aid classes, enabling people to learn ‘crucial’ skills which could prove invaluable.

Nursery practitioner Lauren Kayler encouraged people to take part.

She said: “First aid is crucial and I have already put my training to good use in the wider community when someone with a previously undetected heart defect collapsed 
in a local restaurant where I was eating.

“When something like that happens it makes you more determined to share knowledge and first aid expertise.

“The courses we run don’t have to be for a qualification, parents can also come along to undergo basic training so they feel confident in dealing with an emergency should one occur.”
