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.
