First Aid for Parents with Kidzaid Sunday 14th October 10:30am. Paul from Kidsaid is an emergency nurse and will be at Providence to teach parents how to rapidly recognise and respond to a seriously sick child. He will give you the tools, confidence and knowledge to get you through any emergency situation. Cost per person is $40 however, Providence will be covering $15 of the cost for this training. This means that it will cost you $25 per person. We have limited numbers. Click here to book and pay for your spot. Note: On the day, whist you can come along with a babe in arms, children who are mobile, cannot be accommodated for due to the size and nature of the venue.

Friday 19th October 6:30pm to 9:00pm, join the team from Arts, Crafts & Sewing in the Ripley Valley for another fun night of crochet, knitting or sewing (with a little bit of chardonnay and cheese thrown in). Bring your own project along, or if you don't know where to start just bring some yarn and needles and there will be some expertise in the room who can get you started. No cost, all welcome.
