Canterbury Retired Police Club
The Retired Police Club (Canterbury) was formed in 1969 and has operated continuously for the past 36 years to service the interests of both retired police members and those who have resigned from the Police in good standing. The interests are seen as purely social.
The District Commander of the day is the Club's Patron.
Currently, the Club has 95 members and includes widows of previous members who retain membership (if they wish). At this time there is no subscription fee.
The main social events each year are a mid-year luncheon, and a Christmas luncheon. The latter function is routinely held at the Christchurch Casino and attracts more than 70 people. The AGM is held prior to the mid year function, at which time members can decide on any other social activities they may wish to participate in.

Club members and their partners, widows and friends hold a Mid-Year luncheon in June as well as a Christmas luncheon in December. The club currently has 39 members (as at Nov 12), who pay an annual subscription of $10.00.

Wanganui Retired Police Club
The Wanganui Police club commenced in 1985 with a meeting at the Wanganui Police Station however as members became older and the stairs became a problem for some the meetings were held at the local RSA for many years and then about two years ago shifted to the present venue.
A newsletter is prepared each month with details of forthcoming events, activities in other regions, local member occurrences and deceased notices. The newsletter is available to other clubs on request.
Frequent visits are made to other clubs and we hold an annual social evening. We also endeavour to have at least one trip away a year to a place of interest. Many of our members take an interest in the NZ Masters Games and if anyone would like to know more about this please feel free to request a copy of the Information Pack. There are some 68 sports or activities so there is sure to be one for everyone! Just send us an email or letter.
