Merry Xmas to all our readers

Yes it is that time of year already and our fifth Christmas of providing you with update information, topics and photographs.
We are delighted to let you know that our fame is certainly spreading, both on the web and in the Durham Peeler Magazine. We are now reaching Afghanistan, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Canada, U.S.A., Chile, Israel and even British West Hartlepool! You will be delighted to know that we have now had more than 360,000 ‘hits’ on the web page’s and over 200 regular recipients of death notifications of serving and retired officers.

If you’d like to join the list, let us have your email details,brief service details and specific points of interest. It always pays to be informed. (send email to :

If you have recently retired on pension, why not take up membership of N.A.R.P.O. and receive the Durham Peeler Magazine (Twice/year), the National NARPO News magazine  (4 times/ year) Social Events, really competitive Insurance rates  and opportunity to attend the 6 bi-monthly meeting where you enjoy a great atmosphere, meet old friends and colleagues and keep up to date with things that affect your pension.

This coming year will see a change of chairman as Alan Watson will be retiring from the post  at the Durham NARPO AGM on Monday 21st March 2016 (1930hrs) at Durham Indoor Bowling Club (Although he will still be very busy with ‘pen & paper’, preparing & publishing the Durham Peeler magazine). Hopefully we’ll have a good turnout at the AGM to show our appreciation to Alan for the many years of help & support he has provided to us & to welcome the new chairman into the post

To those who have sadly lost their loved ones this year we especially extend our deepest sympathy at this time of the year.
Here’s wishing you all a Merry Xmas & a Happy New Year,  may it be a prosperous, healthy and successful New Year.
