Loughor Town band’s annual concert, Saturday evening (16th September), at the Loughor Welfare Hall.
There is a considerable connection between the South Wales Police and Loughor Town Band, in that 12 Town Band Players are also official Police Volunteers and play for the South Wales Police Band. In fact both Bands run a joint diary because both can’t be out at the same time. The Police Band now, almost entirely, consists of Volunteers most of whom, like me are retired Officers.

I have attached a poster with all the details of the concert. In addition entry can be paid for at the door - entry for children is free.

Police Reunion for local Retired Officers
The reunion would include, entertainment, buffet and bar facilities at barrack prices, (much lower than local pub prices). Entry would be by way of tickets which would of course include wives and partners. It is intended to be on an informal relaxed basis for all to enjoy. They can cater for up to 140 .There will be a live show for part of the evening by Royal Marine sweetheart Kirsten Osborn who is well known for her charity work and can be found on her own website by typing in her name. An easy going DJ will cover between her performance as background music. They will be a small raffle and contributions would be welcome. Any profits from the evening will be allocated to military charities to support injured servicemen and their families
Please note that this not a Swansea Narpo organised event and consequently we will not be involved the organisation of the evening in any way but we are more than happy to publicise it on behalf of the membership who would like to attend.

|Travel Services Offered - Hi, my name is Christina and I’m a Travel Counsellor In my ‘former life’ I was a Police Officer for 13 years in South Wales. In 2014, my husband Andy retired from South Wales Police and we bought a round the world ticket and went exploring for a year. On our return, we decided I should set up my own business doing what I love and bought a franchise in Travel Counsellors.

Committee – next meeting will be held on Monday 16th October 2017.
Website appeal - Our Website continues to flourish, is well visited and complemented by our Facebook page 'Swansea Narpo'. We are confident though there must be many photographs and interesting/amusing anecdotes from 'your time in the job'. So, please do feel free to contribute and get in touch - you can of course remain anonymous if you so wish! We also welcome any suggestions you may have for improving 'your' website.
Difficulty opening our Newsletters - We are aware that some of you may still be experiencing problems when opening Newsletters. The Newsletter is created using Microsoft Word but not everyone has this program installed, so to get around this issue, the document is sent out as a PDF file which can then be opened and read using the FREE program Adobe Acrobat Reader. Be very careful though when about to install because the 'optional offer' boxes are already ticked. To disable, just untick the 2 boxes before installing. We hope this clarifies things but of course should you have further questions then please feel free to contact us.
Website/Newsletters by Email - our rolling programme on this is progressing well but it is vital that we have your correct email addresses. If you are not yet receiving your copy of the news letter by Email only and you wish to change to that method, then send Phil Taylor an Email to email@example.com and he will arrange it. This saves us postage costs and gives you a much better presentation in colour etc.
Now for the 'boring small print' - It's a closed group and we have the following ground rules:
Our ground rules - This Facebook page is open for all to view, Membership is restricted to retired and serving officers, and support staff, their relatives, close friends, and any member of the greater Police family. It aims to keep us all in touch with each other and to share news, views and events. Please keep it light-hearted. Any unsuitable comments/derogatory/character assassinations etc will be deleted.
Friends can only add new members with Admin approval. We have already had several requests from people wishing to become members who have been unable to justify their connection to the Police family, and they have been rejected. Also, please, no business advertising is allowed; there are already opportunities on our website to advertise for a small cost, on an annual basis which includes an entry in our quarterly newsletter.
If you are a member please do not hesitate to post any news, events or anecdotes that you would like to share with ex colleagues. We also welcome photographs for this Facebook page and our website, helping to keep everything fresh and interesting. Thank you all for your support and submitions to date. It's very much appreciated, thank you.
