New Trustee

With effect from 1st March 2011, the Fund Committee are pleased to welcome

Paul Manifield as a new Trustee to the Management Commttee. Paul is a

Detective Constable based at Ivybridge and will represent the South Hams

and West Devon areas. Paul replaces Steve Pengilly as a Trustee who

retired from the Force in February 2011.

Trustee Vacancy

Steve Pengilly who is the Fund Trustee for the South Hams and West Devon is retiring from the Force at the end of February 2011.

As such there is now a vacancy for a constable Trustee to represent that area. If any constable Fund member stationed in that area wishes to be considered as a Trustee please contact the Fund Administrator Gerry Allen by e-mail for more details. The task of Trustee is not onerous but is important to the running and very existence of the Fund.

Best wishes to Steve in his retirement and many thanks for his time and input to the Compassionate Fund during his tenure as a Fund Trustee.

Fund Receives Notification Of Legacy

The Fund Administrator has been notified of a legacy from the estate of the late Miss Joyce Kathleen Pugsley of Barnstaple. The Fund is a main beneficiary along with two other national charities. The Fund will receive 33.3% of the residual estate and the value of the estate has been valued at just over £3,000,000. Miss Pugsley did not have any known direct connection to the police or the Fund but clearly she held the local police force and the Fund in high esteem. The sadness, is that we cannot thank her in person for her very great generosity. The estate is quite complicated and it is likely that it will take several years for it to be finalised.

Fund’s Oldest Member

It is with sadness that we publish the death of the Fund’s oldest member: Ex- Chief Superintendent George Brown of St Austell was 101 years and died on 19 November 2010.

George originally joined the Old Penzance Borough Police and retired from the Devon and Cornwall Constabulary in 1969.
