News from Cardiff Narpo -
Volunteer patients wanted
Patients are often very knowledgeable about their condition and this is invaluable when helping medical students to gain a better understanding from the patient’s perspective. People with a range of long term health conditions, as well as health volunteers, are needed.
If you are interested in becoming a Volunteer Patient (VP) Then please visit the NEWSHEADLINES page under the Welcome Menu of our website www.narpocardiff.com where you will find more information and points of contact etc.

Important pension news from Narpo HQ
In order to achieve this upgrade of earlier years, three options were offered; the payment of a lump sum, additional contributions from pay until the end of service or payment from the future police pension. Not all officers took the option to 'buy' back service.
Anyone who joined after April 1972 will automatically leave a half rate widows pension. Anyone with service prior to April 1972 and continuing to serve will either leave a half [if they chose to uprate] or a mixture of a third for service prior to April 1972 and a half for the period after 1972.
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.
New Members - Welcome to: Will Rees, Jayne James, Gavin Williams, Nick Davies, Nicola Anderson, Betty Jones, Michael Crocker, Jayne Evans, Kath Pritchard and at long last Terry Williams.
Get well soon to - Malcolm Humphreys, Grey Phillips, Dave Brewer, Brian Jones, Rodney Williams,
Committee next meeting will be on Mon 30th April 2018. Please contact any Committee Member or the Secretary Phil Taylor on Tel: 01792 842378 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know if you want any issue raised.
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 email@example.com.
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.
