WITH lots of fetes and festivals and sporting events taking place across East Lancashire, these group of unsung heroes are always there ready to help us...St John Ambulance service.

So we have looked through our archives to find photographs of them in action.

Among the pictures show Jennifer Woodward demonstrating her bandaging skills at a coffee morning at the drill hall on Eagle Street in Accrington in 1994.

Then another photo shows Audley Junior School class showing off their rewards for first aid lessons from the St John Ambulance and their certificates in 1990.Also showing off their first aid skills were Darwen St John Ambulance Badger group from left Lisa Walmsley, Crystal Norman, Rian Pollard and Leanne Parsons in 1992

We also have shots from the Rossendale St John Ambulance Brigade who were inspected at Goodshaw Baptist Church at Crawshawbooth in 1991.

Finally there was an awards night in Padiham in 1994 and pictured were Patricia Fawcett CEO, Kath Corner Norman Mitchell, Kath Robinson and Dorothy Hodgson.
