First Aid classes for families offered by BCT

This is a 3-hour class suitable for parents, expectant parents and carers of babies and young children. It covers first aid techniques for babies (0-1 years) and children (1-12 years), such as for choking, basic life support and common first aid scenarios. These classes provide plenty of opportunity to practise new skills while promoting the confidence to use them should the need ever arise.

The BCT First Aid classes are open to BCT members and non-members alike and are led by the BCT’s first-aid qualified prenatal teacher Kate Ellwoodome.

Practical Brexit III

The BBCA in conjunction with the British Chamber of Commerce (EU & Belgium) and ING Bank will hold a third meeting on Tuesday 8 May 2018 focusing on issues of concern for British citizens.

The meeting will enable individuals rather than companies or organisations to obtain some guidance on aspects arising out of BREXIT that may be causing them some concern.

As previously, HM Ambassador Alison Rose has kindly agreed to give a further update on the state of the negotiations.

There will also be an information session including Q&A on registration and voting procedures for Belgian local elections with Tom Huddleston of the VoteBrussels initiative. In addition, Fiona Godfrey from the British in Europe organisation (the largest coalition group of British citizens living and working in Europe and defending the rights of UK citizens in the EU now and after Brexit) will be there.

A panel of people with experience in applying for citizenship will also be present to answer questions you may have about Brexit issues, Belgian citizenship etc.

The meeting will be held on Tuesday 8th May 2018 from 18h00 at the ING Auditorium, Avenue Marnixlaan 24, 1000 Brussels. Nearest metro station is Trone (line 2,6)
