When my Father Brian Fuller CBE, a former chief executive reached 80 , the Fire Service College held a celebratory lunch with former colleagues.  They took over all the organisation very efficiently.  Venue and food were very good and as circumstances changed the college were quick to adapt and respond.

The staff who managed arrangements along with those who provided the services on the day could not have been more helpful or friendly.

The whole event was hugely appreciated by all who attended.

Thank you
