The house looks like an ordinary semi-detached but, because it arrived on site as whole wall panels with doors and windows already installed, the main structure took only three days to put up.

The ambulance service gives volunteers first aid training covering basic life support, the use of a defibrillator and oxygen. Then, working on a rota basis, volunteers are notified of an emergency by ambulance control via a mobile phone. First Responders usually arrive before the ambulance and the prompt medical attention they offer can often saves lives.
If you would like to find out more about joining this dedicated group of volunteers, email your contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
