Does “Softly Softly”, Life on Mars”, “Ashes to Ashes” & “New Tricks”, “Silent Witness” bring back memories? Then this is for you –

Over the past year I have received a number of requests to organise a Gloucestershire CID Reunion/gathering. As a result I am making this circulation via Gloucestershire Branch NARPO email, Gloucestershire NARPO Branch Newsletter, hopefully the Gloucestershire JBB, Federation & Force Intranet in order to establish the feasibility as regards numbers, including partners, that would be interested in meeting up for a purely informal social evening. If you know of anyone who may not receive this circulation then please make them aware.

If there are sufficient numbers to make this viable then a central venue will be researched and booked, possibly a Saturday in May or October 2013, with licensed bar and provided light refreshment. Attendance would by prepaid ticket, non-profit making, to cover the costs involved,

if you have served/currently serve in the “CID” in Gloucestershire or the various associated “Squads”, “Teams”, “Services” as a serving officer or in civilian police support or have been or are currently involved in investigations/operations by virtue of your profession/employment in the caring services or retail and would like to catch up with colleagues and hear and share  tales from past to present contact me.
