The Chief's Blog - May 2020

Good day all and I hope it now goes without saying – thank you. I don’t need to say any more than this really, but it does need saying and it needs to be heard. As a Staffordshire Resident with most of my family in this county, I am so grateful for everything that is being done by every volunteer, community group, charity and social enterprise. And I am proud that Support Staffordshire and partners have played our part so a tiny self-indulgent thank you to the team here too, you’ve been ace.
