This year will be the 9th local Police Memorial Day service and it will be taking place in Weston-super-Mare thanks to the hard work of a number of individuals, but particularly Sergeant Neil Goodwin who will be retiring himself this year.

The service will take place at Clarence Park Baptist Church, Walliscote Road, W-s-M on Sunday 24th September 2017, and you need to be at the church by 2.45pm for the service between 3pm – 4pm. Refreshments will follow and the the Police Choir, Mace Escort and Fire Service contingent will again be supporting this event. The service is honored to be joined once again by families of fallen officers and we aim to have a good congregation supporting them as the event is open to families and friends of officers and staff.

The National Police Memorial Day aims to, remember police officers who have been killed or died on duty, demonstrate to relatives, friends and colleagues of fallen officers that their sacrifice is not forgotten and recognise annually the dedication to duty and courage displayed by police officers.

Please indicate whether you are able to attend (to help with catering purposes) by emailing

As in the past it has been good to see so many retired officers at the event supporting their serving colleagues and families.

In a year that has been difficult for the policing family, with too many names being added to the roll of honour, come and join use in paying your respects to those who are no longer with us and supporting those families that have lost a loved one.
