Organisers of St John Ambulance's Martham unit are appealing for local parents to enrol their young children as Badgers at the village's Badger sett.

Badgers are the youngest St John Ambulance volunteers, aged between seven and 10, and work towards achieving their Super Badger Award, which includes learning first aid as well as completing 12 subjects ranging from Creative and Active to Healthy and Caring. This lively programme has been developed to enable young people to learn important life skills in a fun and safe environment.

Jessica Hilton, leader of the St John Ambulance Badger sett in Martham, said: 'I'd really like to hear from local parents who are interested in enrolling their children in the sett. Not only will the youngsters learn first aid, they will also take part in a number of other interactive exercises over the weeks which will help them develop many useful life skills.

'We have room for another 10 Badgers to join our fun and welcoming sett and start learning the techniques to save a life. Please get in touch if this is something your children would be keen to do.'

Martham Badgers meet on Wednesdays between 6pm and 7.15pm in term-time only.
