Wilfred Fuller Training Centre

From CC Andy Marsh:

I was at Wilfred Fuller Training Centre today and was admiring the tree that you generously donated just over one year ago.

The team have watered it and taken care of it well in its first year, and as you can see it is flourishing. Just out of view in the foreground is a seating area for officers and staff to relax (so they are able to look at the tree too).

I hope all NARPO members are doing okay as we emerge from the lockdown and just wanted you to know that I was thinking of you.

Cancellation - Oake Manor

We regret that it has been necessary, following liaison with the management there, to cancel the Lunch planned for Oake Manor Golf Club on Wednesday 7 October 2020.

We know that this will be a disappointment to many.

The July Newsletter will carry the Branch Committee's thoughts regarding the payments deferred from the May Lunch, scheduled for Brean Country Club, so please await its arrival before making contact with the Honorary Treasurer.
