Swansea Narpo Golf Day
The advantage of Clyne is that players can tee-off at both the 1st. and 10th. Tees. We will also have use of 5 buggies. The day includes coffee and bacon roll on arrival, followed by 18 holes of golf on a championship course, a two course meal after the round followed by a short prize giving which will include the presentation of the old Swansea Police Golf Club “Joe Trigg” Trophy.
Members with current club handicaps and lapsed handicaps are welcome as the entry will be split accordingly with prizes for both groups and lady golfers are welcome. The total cost for the day is £30 per person but the event is subsidised including the purchase of prizes, so depending on the number of entries we hope to make a refund of £5 to £10 per person on the day. Those members who do not wish to play golf are welcome to attend the social event / meal after the round at a cost of £10 for the 2 course meal.
This is a great opportunity to meet up with some former colleagues, catch up in a friendly social environment, and with your support we are sure it will be a successful day hopefully to be repeated annually. It is vital that we know the numbers attending- many have already been contacted and expressed interest so if you wish to participate please phone Dave Rees at 07521 293843 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

|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.

NARPO Conference 2016 -
Just to let you know that you can now watch NARPO Conference 2016 on our You Tube channel right here. So, if you want to know what was discussed please view it now.
Forthcoming Christmas Dinner and Bus Trips can be found right here.
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.
Police Stations - We now have a new page solely for Police Stations. Please do feel free to send us photographs, especially of those buildings that no longer stand, for example, Gowerton Station.
You can access the new page here and from the Scrapbook menu on the Home page of this website.
Art Gallery - You may not be aware that we have our very own 'Art Gallery'. You can visit the page right here.
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.
