Last night we were lucky enough to have as our speaker Alan Rogers, who delivered his talk, ‘A policeman’s lot’. He served as a police officer for 33 years for the Warwickshire force. As a youngster, he desperately wished to become a professional footballer. His parents had other ideas, and insisted he join the police, by ‘encouraging’ him to watch Dixon of Dock Green, and then Z Cars!!
He was accepted as a cadet for the police and then went on to train as an officer.
He shared a number of humorous anecdotes about the 89 year old Hells Angel, who he let off with a caution, after speeding at over 140mph!! His first fitting for his police uniform and his first arrest. He covered a range of stories about incidents in court, together with the practical jokes played on new police officers. He went on to say that these would never be allowed now, but they did help relieve the enormous stress that they encountered day to day.
Check out what’s being planned nationally, including a holiday, 2017 Resolutions, competitions, things to make and training. It’s all in the latest NFWI newsletter.
Latest updates, too, from WI House for events planned for 2017. This includes a Food Hygiene course on Saturday 18 March 2017, just 20 places available.
Our speaker tomorrow, the 23rd, is our friendly, retired-police-officer who will be delivering humorous anecdotes from his time in the force. We just hope none of us feature in his tales! Guaranteed a laugh.
Demonstration of traditional Archimedes drill used by craftsmen. Excellent tour this morning.
