Milborne Port pupils sad to say goodbye to favourite police officer
MILBORNE Port pupils bid a sad farewell to a favourite police officer at a special assembly.
Primary school pupils said goodbye to PCSO Mandy Forsey who left her post last week at Wincanton Police Station, covering Milborne Port, to become a youth intervention officer in Crewkerne.
Children presented her with a card, hand-drawn pictures, a framed group shot and a plant.
Head teacher Suzie Milligan said Ms Forsey had worked tirelessly for the children and the village.

She said: “We are very sad to see Mandy go. She took regular assemblies to make the children more aware of the dangers surrounding issues such as fireworks, Hallowe’en, stranger danger and she held regular road safety and Talk Time workshops.
“She was instrumental in creating good links between the school and groups in the community, and arranged for the choir to sing to residents of a housing scheme and serve lunches to the elderly.”
Ms Forsey said: “There were a few tears at the assembly.
“I’m going to miss my post and the village so much.
“I want to thank everyone for their support.”
She will hand over many of the community projects she led – including a farmers market – but will continue to see the Sk8pipedream project through to completion.
A new PCSO is now in training for the Milborne Port area. Meanwhile, Jon Wingfield, PCSO for Henstridge and Templecombe, will look after the area.
