First on the scene at traffic accidents
Coxley and District WI
It was a bitter wind that greeted us on our first meeting of the year in February, but the hall was warm.
Jenny called out the absences and respect was shown for Joan Cooke, who died in January. Jenny also welcomed a visitor, June, who came to look us over.
We all thanked Sandra for arranging for us to go to Wells Golf Club, on January 17, an excellent meal which everyone enjoyed. Pauline was also thanked for doing the reading at West Pennard Church, on December 15, at our carol service, but sadly some of us missed it.

Coxley is to be in charge of the road show on April 23, but there is time yet for the programme to be finalised, plus our soup and pud day on April 9.
The First Responders, from the Wells team, who are controlled by the South Western Ambulance Service, run by the NHS, came to see us. Four strapping men arrived with their equipment and screen, which they have to buy themselves, along with most of their clothing and vehicles. They are all volunteers, funded by voluntary contributions, but still under the control of the NHS. Some of their members have received medals from the Queen, for continued service. They themselves get basic training, but are more often than not, first on the scene in traffic accidents, and asked us to leave all our lights on if waiting for them to come to our house in the dark of night. There are no concessions for them on the roads, no blue lights or speed preferences. After question time, some ladies practiced on the respiration dummy and Jenny then gave the vote of thanks.
Rosemary won the flower competition, Pat Steer was first in the competition for an item with medical connections. At our meeting in March, Mrs Hale will be talking to us about Chinese cookery.
