Season’s greetings from your Federation

22 December 2020

I would like, on behalf of us all at Gwent Police Federation, to wish officers, staff and our team of volunteers a safe and happy Christmas and all the best for a happy and healthy New Year.

I would also like to put on record my thanks to each and every officer, member of staff and Special for their efforts throughout this year. People have worked incredibly hard in extremely challenging circumstances and everyone in the Federation office recognises that.

Of course, many of you will be working at least part of the Christmas and New Year break but, even if that is the case, I hope you will be able to find time to relax with your family. 

Obviously, Christmas is not going to be quite the same this year due to the pandemic but I think we all just have to make the best of it and enjoy the festive period.

Our thoughts go out to those who have lost loved ones this year and to those, who due to the current restrictions, cannot see their family members over Christmas and New Year.

Take care, stay safe and stay well.

Steve Thorpe

Chair of Gwent Police Federation
