In September, we had a visit from Mr. Shaw Taylor (Of Police Five fame). This brought back many memories for everyone. Jenny, from the ‘Pets as Therapy Dogs’, with her lovely dog Archie. He was a great hit with all of us, including our new Police Sergeant Mike Sizer, who wanted to kidnap him.
We have had some very good news from PCSO Oatley. He informed us yesterday that he has been talking to his Inspector regarding funding for these events.  Today he emailed to say that his Inspector has secured £150.00 funding towards future events.  All members expressed their grateful thanks to Steve and his Inspector for this grant.
