ANOTHER chance will be offered to learn basic skills that could save a life in a crisis.
Retired physiotherapist Alison Gibb has had a good response to her efforts to set up Heartstart training sessions for a group of villages near Dereham.
And, after a story about Alison's efforts appeared in the Times, a number of readers elsewhere in the Dereham and Fakenham area got in touch with her with a view to setting up Heartstart sessions in their localities.
Her first session, at Hardingham Village Hall next Thursday, is already booked up, but Alison is taking names for a second one at Barnham Broom Village Hall on Monday, April 6, from 4pm to 6pm.

Heartstart courses are set up through the British Heart Foundation and cover emergencies such as stroke, choking or a heart attack.
