A FLINTSHIRE community has learnt life-saving skills in partnership with the Welsh Ambulance Service.

Mostyn Community Council and the Welsh Ambulance Service are collaborating to help residents and councillors to learn basics in how to save a life.

The event ran at Mostyn Community Centre on Wednesday afternoon and saw residents learn the art of delivering basic CPR with the use of mannequins.

Debbie Seddon, community council chair, said: "Supporting the well being of our residents is an important role for Mostyn Community Council.

"So this session was vital in helping to give local people the confidence to know what to do should they see a member of the community with health difficulties in need of urgent help."

Kay Roberts, clerk to the council, added: "I for one didn't feel confident at delivering CPR before yesterday's session, so I and other residents are very grateful for the Welsh Ambulance Service taking the time to show us.

"It was really well received and I a few residents who missed the session have been in touch to say how they'd have loved to have been involved.

"For that reason, we're looking at the possibility of running another session later in the year."
