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.

Email or write to 1, Peakstile Piece, Woodmancote, Cheltenham GL52 9XA or phone 01242 677779 leaving your full name, contact postal address, email address (if possible) and a contact phone number.
