Casting Tree Petts Request

A request has been made by Narpo HQ to circulate the below:

We are casting a lovely ad campaign, we often cast ‘real’ people, as opposed to professional models, as many companies want a real story to be shared, which is so amazing! So we thought of the amazing retired police officers that may be interested!

We are looking for Retired or about to retire Homeowners who are in their late 50’s, 60’s and 70’s to feature in a new ad campaign. We are unable to mention who it’s for yet (these things are kept back in the earlier stages of casting!)

If any applicant is selected, they would be paid, which is always nice! All they have to do is email: with their name, contact number, where they are based and a photo if they have one. We will then get back to them to share a little more info regarding the campaign. Or a family member or friend may get in contact on their behalf with their permission.

We have created a flyer with all of the info (Flyer is attached), so would be wonderful if you would be able to share this with anyone you know or your contacts/social media.

We are up against time, so would be very grateful if anyone is interested could try to contact us this week. Please see flyer here

Saturdays Get Togethers

I have now secured the upstairs bar at HQ Sports Pavilion for our next two Saturday morning get-togethers – 10:30hrs start so please note dates in your diaries as would be great to get a few more attending the next ones.

7th December; the speaker will be Paul Clancy who will be entertaining us with magic. If you haven’t seen Paul perform before he is captivating to watch and a skilled member of the magic circle. This will be an enjoyable show so please make every effort to come along and I may well provide mince pies for this meeting.

15th February; a couple of people have already offered to speak and depending on availability the next speaker will be decided at the Dec meeting. If anyone else has any interesting hobbies/stories they would like to speak about then please let Peter Sharp know (email here) roughly how long you would like to speak for and he will compile a list for future get-togethers.
