NARPO Chelmsford Weekly Update 11th Jan 2020
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and would like to wish you all a Happy New Year on behalf of the Committee. I look forward to progressing initiatives during 2020 on behalf of Chelmsford Branch and we will continue to support the welfare of our members.
Subscriptions for 2020 now due
The minimum annual subscription is set by the NARPO National Executive Committee and is adjusted each January at the same rate as police pensions. For 2020, this is an increase of 1.7% to £21.48 (£21.12 in 2019). Chelmsford branch levies no more than this minimum amount.
If you pay by monthly deductions from your Essex Police pension, you need take no action as these will be adjusted automatically to £1.79 (previously £1.76). If you do not pay in this way, the whole amount of £21.48 is now due.
The preferred method of payment is via BACS (bank transfer) to the following account: NARPO (Chelmsford) sort code 30-91-85 account number 01268114 quoting your initials and surname as the reference.
If you prefer to pay by cheque, please email The Treasurer for details of where to send it.
Please note that NO subscription is due from those members who are Life, spouse, widow or widower members or those members whose primary membership is with another branch.
Get Togethers – 15th February 2020 10:30 – 13:00hrs at HQ Sports and Social Club where Bill Pirie will be doing a talk and we will be receiving a short presentation from Simply Stride regarding an initiative I am progressing in relation to a wellbeing course scheduled for March.
We have now booked the same venue for the following Get Together which will take place between 10:30 – 13:00hrs on 4th April 2020, speaker will be announced shortly.
Theese gatherings have been enjoyed by the members who have attended so far. It is a great opportunity to catch up with your ex-colleagues and listen to some interesting speakers. I would encourage you to attend and also bring your spouse/partner if you wish to.
