No cuts for Colchester first-aid volunteers
ST JOHN ambulance services in Colchester are safe.
Braintree has seen its unit of voluntary first-aiders merged with Halstead due to a lack of numbers.
But St John Ambulance PR manager, Sarah Jafar, has confirmed there will be no such cuts in Colchester.
She said: “The town has three units and they are all thriving.”
