The Centre is fortunate to have a tremendous team to run it. The Manager is Jean Woodrow, with Ingrid Pennell as her ‘second in command’. These are the only two paid members of staff.
We have two regular volunteers. Shirley Goate, who has been a volunteer for many years and Lilian Simmonds who is in charge of teas.
Everyone is trained to operate the panel which is used to work the hyperbaric oxygen chamber and yearly training is given on all aspects. All of the team are been CRB (now DBS) checked and hold a first aid certificate which is updated every three years.
Things can get pretty hectic at times and they are all excellent at bringing a smile to everyone’s faces.
