Defibrillator Community Awareness Sessions

After the huge success of a promise auction back in April to raise money for defibrillators in the Rede Valley, the 9 units were delivered this week and the first training sessions were held at the RTC Sports Centre, West Woodburn Parish Hall and Elsdon Village Hall.

Further training sessions are being held next Sunday 15th November at Byrness Village Hall at 3.00pm and Rochester Village Hall at 6.00pm. These sessions are free and open to anyone from any area including children.

We have these units thanks to the generosity of everyone who attended that night and the hard work of the organisers so the more people who can use the devices the more lives we can save, so please attend one of the sessions if possible.

Tynedale Mini Soccer League Finals

The RTC held the Tynedale Mini Soccer Finals Day on Saturday 17th October, the day was a huge success and the weather even though chilly stayed dry.

The event saw teams travel from Hexham, Corbridge, Throckley, Prudhoe, Kingston Park, Wylam, Wark, Haltwhistle and Allendale bringing with them big crowds, it was great to see the RTC so busy.

Well done to all the teams who took part, we hope you enjoyed your day and hope to see you all again in the future and a big thank you to all the helpers on the day
