...not The Police that singer Sting was in of course. I came across this fabulous restored police car in Piccadilly yesterday morning. It's a 1951 Wolsley complete with bell and blue police sign on top. It's a bit of a coincidence really as I was on my way to The Wolsey restaurant for a fathers day breakfast en famille. Interestingly The Wolsey restaurant is housed in the former showroom of Wolsey cars...talk about fate or what..
On a more important and serious note you may know that there has been a television programme about the Metropolitan Police running on BBC television, it's been featuring various parts of London. Coming up shortly it's the turn of Redbridge to be featured. Wanstead resident and Neighbourhood Watch ward co-ordinator Steve Wilks popped into the Gallery the other day to tell me that there is a chance to get a preview on the 24th June between 6 and 8pm at Wanstead Golf Club, do try to get along and support our local police who do such a great job. More details supplied by Steve below..
'The BBC have filmed a documentary on the Metropolitan Police. The film crews were give unparalleled access in the hope of producing an honest and frank portrait of the Metropolitan Police.
