    I've been a member for 2 and a half years now. I am currently an AFA but with the training requirements for different first aid levels about to change next year, I could soon go down and be an FA.

    Hi! I've been a member for nearly 7 years now (oh dear...) although I appear to be taking a temporary hiatus from it. Currently AFA with Med Gases, and not sure if I'm going to stick with the organisation.

    Wow you had to do an interview I just turned up in this little hall in the middle of no where and my soon to be new friend and division leader was eating a subway on the stage as we got to know each other.

    Apparently now you cannot even attend meetings without having a CRB check.

    Yes there are quite a few LINKS divisions at Universities I have helped out at Surrey University LINKS division before so I know they have one. I also know Coventry has one because my cousin is a member.

    If you follow the link in the OP then you might find more info

    I don't really know my division doesn't have any cadets lol.

    I'm still wearing my old uniform and I sent my waist etc size off ages ago.

    If previous SJA standards are anything to go by we could be waiting another 10 years. In all seriousness though I expect we'll be getting the new uniform next year sometime.
