NARPO Chelmsford Weekly Update 4th Aug ’19
Pensioners Garden Party
2nd August saw the annual pensioners garden party at HQ for all retired officers and police staff.
This year it was sponsored by the three Essex NARPO branches to commemorate the 100 year celebrations of the organisation. The event was very well attended, Chief Constable Harrington made a speech and we all spent a lovely day in the sun chatting and enjoying sandwiches, cakes and fresh strawberries and cream.
We managed to recruit some new members at the event by talking to attendees and sharing the good work NARPO undertake.
A fantastic cake had been arranged by Anne Walker a member of the committee on behalf of the branches which was cut and shared during the day, what a wonderful way to celebrate the 100th Anniversary.
12th October Get Together – 1030-1300hrs Upstairs bar HQ Social Club
Several people have now expressed an interest in attending the get together arranged by Peter Sharp on the above date.
As I have said before this is a new initiative where we are trying to get members together in a social setting to chat about their interests/hobbies etc. I am sure this will be a successful event, and if so we are hoping to arrange this every three months.
A provisional date of 7th December has been set for the next meeting, where we are going to be entertained by the very talented Paul Clancy with magic, so please save this date in your diaries.
A few expressed an interest in attending a seminar on the above subject, I am in the process of ascertaining from the organisers how many attendees would be needed to proceed with this.
In the meantime please see here some information you may find interesting from Hanson Wealth Management.
