SWP Federation's Football Tickets
REGISTER AT http://swpf.org/football/
The South Wales Federation has again purchased 2 season tickets for both Swansea City FC and Cardiff City FC. These tickets will be made available for every game of the season and will be offered intially to those who have a serious welfare consideration. If you have such a consideration, or know someone who has, please submit the details of the circumstances to your divisional rep who will forward them to the office for consideration.
Where no such welfare consideration has been submitted, the tickets will be subject to a draw from those who have registered an interest in attending that particular game. You can register your interest in attending individual games on our dedicated football site at http://swpf.org/football/
Only serving South Wales officers are eligible to register.
Please register only for those games that you will be able to attend. Registering for games on days which you are not available simply causes undue bureaucracy and wastes time. Please don't register for the same game more than once as duplicate entries will be deleted.
The draws will take place around 2 weeks prior to the respective game and the winners will be informed accordingly. Therefore, please include an accurate email address/mobile number so that we can quickly contact you.
The first home game for Swansea is against Newcastle on 15 August and the first home game for Cardiff is against Fulham on 8 August.

Cuts Have Consequences
South Wales Police has over 500 police officers less than in 2007
For a period of 3 weeks from 6th April 2015, the South Wales Police Federation will be displaying banners on the rears of 120 local buses in the South Wales Police area. These banners are intended to highlight the fact that, due to budget cuts which will total £70m by 2019 in South Wales alone and which have resulted in the loss of 502 officers since 2007, the face of British policing is now irrevocably changing. The police will need to prioritise their actions and, in an age when digital crime, on-line fraud and counter-terrorism is consuming so much more police time than ever before, the public should be aware that cuts have consequences.
