First aid events for children and elderly at retirement complex

Where: Stratton Court, Cirencester

When: Wednesday, November 20, and Saturday, November 23

Stratton Court, Aura Care Living's luxury retirement complex near Cirencester, is holding a 'Blue Light Breakfast' and a first aid course for children this week as part of its November first aid theme.

Tomorrow (Wednesday) Stratton Court is inviting all blue light health care professionals in the local area for complimentary breakfast.

From 8am to 10am in the Kensington Restaurant, this event is open to paramedics, firefighters, police officers, doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals, to say thank you for all the work they do in our community. For further information and to RSVP please email 

On Saturday, November 23, from 10am-11am, Aura Care will be holding a free first aid course for children ages 7-11, with Mini First Aid Gloucestershire.

Book your child's free space by emailing Lauren Griffiths (above). This first aid course forms part of Stratton Court's Open Weekend, where the whole retirement village and care home is open to the public between 10am and 4pm both Saturday and Sunday, with complimentary refreshments.

Stratton Court has unveiled a series of free community events, in association with charity 'Re-engage', to enable elderly people within both its own and the local community to regularly engage with others, young and old, make new friendships and critically to combat loneliness.

These events are hosted as complimentary events, with just a request for donations to the charity, Re-engage.

In October the very first Dementia Sing-a-Long was launched, with huge success, seeing many members of the local community join the residents at Stratton Village for a tremendously fun musical session, with delicious cakes and tea and coffee.
