THE St John Event Health Services Wanneroo Division turns 60 this year, making it one of the oldest in the state.

It will hold an open day on Tuesday evening to mark the occasion with both past and present members of Wanneroo division and members from other divisions.

St John EHS general manager Alan Clyne congratulated the division on the milestone.

“This is a great achievement and we are proud of not only this current batch of volunteers but everyone who has gone before them,” he said.

Mr Clyne said St John event staff were very well regarded in the community.

“Wanneroo has always been a strong area for St John; events staff feel very connected to their community and have covered many major events including raceway events and the annual Wanneroo Agricultural Show,” he said.

The open day at 261 Lakeside Drive, Joondalup will run from 7-9.30pm.

Event Health Services currently has about 2000 volunteers across Perth and in 2016-17 they provided health services at more than 3700 events.
