Mourning the loss of Community Support Officer Paul Penman

The Herefordshire Division of West Mercia Police is mourning the loss of Community Support Officer, Paul Penman, who collapsed and died on Saturday, 17th March. Paul was taken ill at his home near Ross-on-Wye while off duty. An ambulance was called, but sadly he died prior to arrival at hospital.

Paul, who was 49 and married with three children, joined West Mercia Constabulary in July 2006 and settled well into his role, covering the Ross-on-Wye Rural area. Popular with his colleagues and well liked by the public, he was clearly enjoying his new career and the chance to serve the community in which he lived.

Chief Superintendent Mark Turner, Divisional Commander for Herefordshire, paid tribute: 'This very sad news has come as shock to all of Paulís friends and colleagues across the division and our thoughts are very much with his family at this difficult time.

Paul was a valued member of the policing team and the community as a whole in south Herefordshire.

His enjoyment of the job was clear to see and he will be much missed by all those who came into contact with him.'

Funeral arrangements are still to be confirmed and enquiries should be made via Abbotsfield Funeral Directors.

Wyenot News Featured Business of the Week
Kingfisher Cruises, Symonds Yat East

As a free additional benefit to those local businesses supporting, every week Wyenot News chooses one local business at random to feature in the current issue of the weekly on-line news magazine.

What better way to discover the beauty of the River Wye than taking a Kingfisher Cruise? Kingfisher Cruises operates from The Saracen's Head in picturesque Symonds Yat East and is owned by Gerald and Ros Gardiner, whose family has been operating successful river cruises for many generations. Kingfisher Cruises are a great way of finding out some of the local history as you make your way through the gorge that separates Symonds Yat East and Symonds Yat West, as well as taking in some of the spectacular scenery and other items of interest that the Captain will point out to you during your cruise. The cruises generally are in operation from March until October. . . .
