Connected to the thread about the demise of the Children’s Bicycle Education Centre, is a question I have about St John Ambulance in the ACT.
The Belconnen division of St John Ambulance used to meet and train at the said bike ed centre in Belconnen; presumably they have now made other arrangements, or has the Belconnen division folded? (Many voluntary organisations, like St John Ambulance, have struggled in Australia in recent years, and I wonder how they are doing here in the nation’s capital?)
Does anyone know about the Belconnen St John Ambulance division, or St John’s other divisions in Canberra? Do they have premises of their own, or do they simply rent spaces?
When I lived in Victoria, St John Ambulance seemed to have quite a high profile there, with their own vehicles and halls etc. However, I don’t see St John having the same profile here in Canberra, apart from its national headquarters building in Forrest.
