Any former police officer suffering from PTSD (or similar problems) please be mindful that the most recent inductee into our outstanding ’Welfare Support Team’ is Branch Member Greg ROBINSON. Greg has experience – and may well be of assistance with the problems you might be undergoing – and is only too pleased to help wherever and whenever he can. Please - if you are having problems – share the burden with those who may be able to help. Nobody, but absolutely nobody, is being judgmental – what affects you, could well have been a problem for any one of us. Please know – that any information you pass on to our ‘Welfare Support Team’ members regarding matters of your health – will be the subject of strict confidentiality, unless you – indicate otherwise. We welcomed a new member Sally Anne Place

It is with heavy heart and much sorrow that I advise readers of the passing of Peter William McMURRAY – Branch Vice Chairman and ‘Gold Coast Foundation Member’. Right up until his recent incapacitation Peter never failed to be mindful of those members who were ailing for want of support or assistance. Like all members of our ‘Welfare Support Team’ Peter gave generously of his time in making himself available to visit others whenever that need arose. About June of last year Peter was diagnosed with ‘mesothelioma’ in his left lung, caused – the doctor’s believe – through his apparent exposure to asbestos many years ago. The prognosis was not good—but at 84 years of age Peter accepted the inevitability of his situation with courage and tenacity. With his adoring wife Noreen by his side (as she always has been) and the support of his loving family Peter continued to fulfil his role as Vice Chairman attending numerous meetings in that capacity—until overwhelmed by ill health. Peter passed away at 5-30am on Thursday the 5th April at the Pindara Private Hospital and is survived by his dear wife Noreen, his loving children Stephan, Narelle, Julie and Bradley.

For anyone in the area, Our branch holds their meeting 2nd Monday of each month and you are welcome to join us.
