Police Legatees enjoy connection at Easter High Tea and a tour of 'Airlie'

Published: Wednesday 27 March 2024

This wonderful group of police legatees enjoyed a superb morning at 'Airlie' Leadership Development Centre in South Yarra on Monday, enjoying a scrumptious Easter high tea and tour of the facility thanks to the wonderful invitation from fellow police legatee Leading Senior Constable Deborah-Lee Griffiths and Acting Inspector Cory Knox.

Airlie is a house of historical significance, built in 1873 by David Ogilvy, and was a residence for successive owners, some of whom were prominent citizens of Melbourne. During World War II it was used as the headquarters for an intelligence unit who organised secret raids against the enemy. Post World War II, Victoria Police use Airlie as a training centre, and it's now also a venue available to the public for weddings and other functions.

A huge 'THANKS' to Deb and Cory for hosting us and for arranging the tour and the delicious high tea treats, and 'CONGRATULATIONS' to lucky police legatee Jan Cooper for winning the Easter door prize!
