Flint House staff send a sincere thanks to TVP for inviting FH representatives to todays opening of The Browning Room. Set up by poular demand after surveying officers what they would envision as a place to just relax in at break times it was agreed to convert an old and long disused control room as a breakout /drop in suite for Police officers to go, to relax, eat, chill and to talk in comfort and security. Designed to make Reading a happier and healthier place for Officers to work.
The Suite is named in honour and memory of Thames Valley Police officer Gareth Browning. Gareth was patrol in Whitley, Reading, in November 2013 when he was hit by a vehicle he was attempting to stop. He never recovered from his injuries passing away in April 2017 as a result of those injuries .
