NARPO Chelmsford Weekly Update 2nd Nov ’19
Just a short Update on the Financial seminar I organised which was held on 31st October. The event was attended by members and their spouses who received an interesting and beneficial presentation from Hanson Wealth. Many of the attendees said it was a worthwhile presentation and that they had gained some valuable information from it, as well as being able to save a considerable amount of money when planning for the future. Thank you to those that attended – it was lovely to meet some new faces.
On the same subject, as you are aware I am keen to progress the social side of our branch and arrange other interesting meetings and get-togethers but this all takes additional time and planning on top of my already busy role. To this end, The Chairman has asked me to place the following article in the news.
The Chelmsford Branch is mainly focussed upon the welfare of our members and we feel that developing the social side of our work is an integral part of that process.
We are keen to recruit a volunteer Social Secretary to become part of our Branch Committee. The role will involve developing current events, as well as coming up with new ideas for the future benefit of our members.
Do you have a few hours to spare each month, are you able to generate new ideas and coordinate our social activities? If the answer is ‘Yes’ (or even ‘maybe’), please contact me, Bob Good, for an informal chat and let’s see how we can take the idea forward.
I look forward to hearing from you.- Bob can be contacted on Chairmans Email

Essex Police Retired Dog Fund
Essex Retired Police Dog Fund is a registered charity which pays for the veterinary bills for retired police dogs. Due to their role in the police the owners cannot get medical insurance. Their website is www.essexretiredpolicedogs.uk where there is lots of information. There is also guidance for anyone wishing to purchase a 2020 Calendar, which would make a nice Christmas present for friends or family who are dog lovers.
Although independent of Essex police they do get lots of support from them through fundraising and even at chief officer level. Recently there was an award ceremony for volunteers at police HQ sports club attended by DCC Pippa Mills, Lord Petre, Lady Rosemary Ruggles-Brize and many dog handlers.
Graham Furnival, a Narpo Branch Committee member, plays an active role in this charity and I would encourage you to support it.
