We have identified a Facebook entry relating to the death of Dave CRANMER, who retired from Wincanton and had been living in Spain for over 30 years. Dave was not a member of this Branch of NARPO. He was pre-deceased by his second wife, Carol, only a few weeks ago. We understand that Dave's next of kin is his daughter, Sharon COOPER.
BANES are looking for volunteers to support as Parent Champions (sharing information about our Service and sign posting to other organisations) and Volunteer Supporters (more in depth one to one support).
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.

Ronald Ernest (Ron) GIBBS, 86 years, who died on 7 July, retired in 1986. His next of kin is his son, Ian, currently living in Taunton.
Ron's Funeral Service is to take place at 11 am on Wednesday 22 July 2020 at Taunton Deane Crematorium. We have been advised that the spaces available in the Crematorium Chapel, under the coronavirus restrictions, have already been allocated.
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.
