Duty at ‘Aċċess’, Qawra

April 10, 2012 in General

On Saturday 31st March 2012, the St Paul’s Bay Local Council organised an open day (from 9:30am till 1:30pm) at ‘Aċċess’, which featured various activities for the attendees. Stands with relevant information about Health Promotion, ETC, Malta Housing Authority and the Ministry of Finance, Economy and Investment were displayed for the public’s perusal. Each entity had representatives who endeavoured in showcasing the functions of their respective organisation as well as to answer any queries put forward by the public. The Health Promotion Department went one step further by giving the opportunity to the general public to be tested by qualified personnel for high/low blood pressure and for glucose levels.

Entertainment was provided by performers on a main stage, making the whole activity more appealing to the attendees. The activity was concluded by a 1-hour Zumba class which saw a very healthy participation by the public. This class prompted people to dance and participate eagerly.

The first aid function of this event was entrusted to the E.F.R.U., which saw to the deployment of a number of its volunteers. During the event, the E.F.R.U. first aiders were called to assist where necessary. No serious injuries were reported.
