Dear Colleagues,

Just a reminder that we help fund Team Building days which we launched in January this year, for those who have taken this initiative up; we have had positive feedback.

The kind of activity we have supported is Paintballing, Bowling, Escape room, Cinema, Theme Parks and Go Ape! (nothing too dangerous!)

We cannot fund these activities in their entirety as we have some rather strict fund rules, and are accountable to our auditors and trustees for all expenditure.

We would however like to support this in some small way in recognition of the pressures officers work under, and as such would like to offer you the following under some specific criteria-

  • £10 per subscribing member contribution from the Beds Police Federation for the purpose of a team building day/activity
  • This must not involve alcohol, and would be to be done in an officers own time
  • We would need to have an invoice/booking confirmation before the funds are released to a nominated SPOC on behalf of the team (we will not accept individual applications)
  • Only one application per officer in a 12 month period commencing from the date of this email
  • The Beds Fed/Chair/Sec will have the final decision on the application/activity being approved, and if we feel it is being misused we will need to reassess this offer.

It may not seem a large contribution, but there are often group offers available, and if it halves the price then it’s better than nothing!

To apply please email the FEDERATION OFFICE (BEDS) with TEAM BUILDING REQUEST in the title with the details (all officers names attending please so we can check our database to confirm subscribing membership) and please include an invoice/proof of booking. Please can you also include all those you are claiming on behalf of into your email. We will then make contact to arrange payment direct to your bank account.

Any questions or queries please get back to either me or Jim.

Kind Regards
