The outgoing Chief Constable of Nottinghamshire reached Newark Police Station this week on the latest leg of his farewell run across the county.

Mr Steve Green is running to 50 police stations and contact points to raise money for charity and bid farewell to police, community support officers, civilian staff and volunteers.

On Tuesday he was dropped off at Farndon and ran from the village’s contact point to Balderton, and then to Newark’s £7m police station, on Queen’s Road, where he met staff including Chief Inspector Mark Holland and Sergeant Tim Burch.

Collingham was his last port of call.

His mileage on the day took him to 80, the half-way mark in his sponsored quest.

“I have always been a runner since my school days and through the Army,” he said.

“It is how I coped with the shift work of being a beat cop and the stresses of the senior ranks.

“You could call this a mid-life crisis. When you hit 50 you appreciate that if you don’t get your fitness back you never will.”

He said he and his family would continue to live in Southwell after he retired next month.

“When we came here in 2000 we quickly made Nottinghamshire our home and it will remain that way. I will continue to read the Advertiser and may well write a letter or two,” he said.

Mr Green is raising money for Care of Police Survivors and the Christopher McDonald Memorial Fund, set up after the murder of Pc Christopher McDonald 30 years ago.

Mr Green has already been to Bingham, Radcliffe and Cotgrave police stations, and while running from Warsop to Ollerton, ran through Sherwood Forest. He ran to Southwell Police Station on Wednesday.
