Age Positive Week - I would be grateful if you you could circulate the following to your branch members please. Could I ask that any responses go directly to the contact details as shown on the email from Age Cymru.
More than 60 different activities were registered with us, from boules and indoor golf to creative writing sessions, film screenings, tea afternoons and open days. These, combined with events organised by Age Cymru, led to a fantastic celebration of ageing enjoyed by hundreds of people across Wales.
If you're organising an event that week for older people, why not promote it as Age Positive Week. We'll add your event onto our calendar.
We welcome correspondence in Welsh or English - * Scams summit - Last few places available *

New Photographs available to view below
Old Photographs - our treasure trove of old Swansea Police photographs is in need of some new items - contributions have virtually dried up. If you also have in your possession some old photographs that are not in good condition- perhaps cracked or blemished - our new Committee Member Mike Green can enhance the quality considerably. If you have such items. You can contact Mike by Email : firstname.lastname@example.org and he will advise accordingly.
Update: 17th May - Photo Repair. Please do not use shown phone number on the Summer Newsletter but email me instead - email@example.com with highest quality scan that you can do. Or, send the original to my address (Please email me for the address) I will respond straight away. Mike Green
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 firstname.lastname@example.org and he will arrange it. This saves us postage costs and gives you a much better presentation in colour etc.
NARPO Travel Insurance Members of the Travel Scheme have recently seen a large increase in their annual renewal, the letter below from AXA tries to answer the question of the large hike in renewal.
Prior to the renewal negotiations for the coming year, AXA PPP Healthcare conducted an exercise to look at the profitability of the scheme from their perspective. They discovered that last year the loss ratio of the scheme was 130%. This means that for every £1 they received in terms of premium they paid out £1.30 in terms of claims. Numerous claims have been over £100,000. Obviously, this is not a sustainable situation, and AXA PPP initially proposed an increase of 35% for the coming year. We managed to limit the increase to 26%, but we realise that this still represents a sizeable increase.
New Members - Welcome to: Tony Powe - Tracey Jones-Jane Nicholas.
14th July - John Hovestadt in Hospital. John was very poorly as a result of his medication and has been admitted to Ward 12 at Singleton Hospital, where that particular medicine has been stopped.

Thank You for your interest during 2017 a year in which our Swansea Branch Membership has reached an all-time high of 544 which obviously increases our administrative workload but we do not mind that as it is encouraging for us to know that the interest is there and the Branch has a secure future.
Social Matters - Again thanks to those of you who support our various functions -
Newsletters/Emails (Spring 2018) This is the first issue to be hard printed in colour and this should be repeated at least throughout 2018. For those who opt for email versions it is vital that we have your correct email addresses.
Communication via computers are now part and parcel of everyday life so it is essential that we have your current email address - if you have doubts on any of this then please contact our Sec Phil Taylor by e mail on firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
|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.
You can read about all I have offer right here...

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.
