        PEEL:

Once again as summer nears we remind ourselves that the festive season is fast approaching. Then we ready ourselves for the annual Country Music Festival for 2017, and the many thousands of visitors who arrive for the 10 days of fun and music.

Our primary water supply, Chaffey Dam, has been raised in height by some 8.5 metres increasing its’ capacity to 100 mega litres. Towards the end of winter good rains fell in the catchment and as the 30th September the dam was at 90 per cent capacity, and with the further rains, still increasing. This should solve the towns water supply problems for quite some time.

Our members meet monthly for a social luncheon at the Kootingal Bowling Club.

Retired Police Day on the 1st September was again held at the North Tamworth Bowling Club, which is an excellent venue as there are a number of separate areas for private functions. The day was very well attended with a number of Retired Police Association members being presented with their National Police Service Medal by Inspector Geoff BUDD, the Acting Superintendent, Oxley L.A.C.

National Police Remembrance Day this year was held at Walcha. A number of our members attended. During the Prayers of Intercession Mrs Janet Dunbar, a resident of Walcha, gave the address, “In Thanksgiving for all Departed Officers”. This was most appropriate as her father was Sergeant Adam Boland SCHELL who was fatally wounded by gun fire on the 8th October, 1968. Even more remarkable was that the Probationary Constable who was with Sergeant SCHELL on that fatal night, was also in attendance. That Probationer is now Retired Detective Inspector Richard Letchford. Mrs Dunbar was presented with a plaque by Inspector Kylie Endemi to honour this special day.

Wishing all Retired Members, Good health.

Doreen Goddard
