About Portsmouth and South East Hampshire Branch

Welcome to the Portsmouth and South East Hampshire Branch of NARPO – otherwise known as Portsmouth NARPO.

We meet bi-monthly at the Royal Marines’ Association club premises at Dunn Close, Southsea, Portsmouth PO4 9SB which is situated off Henderson Road. Dates of forthcoming meetings are posted elsewhere on our web site www.portsmouthnarpo.org.uk .

We see ourselves as being a very friendly, welcoming and thriving branch of NARPO and we certainly have a busy, interesting and varied social life.

Further Key Information

Currently we have over 700 members who range from newly retired officers to some of the oldest Hampshire Constabulary Police pensioners. Included in this number are some 60 widows who maintain contact with our Association despite the loss of their other half.

Despite the title you don’t have to live in the Portsmouth area to join us and if you are already a NARPO member, no matter from which Branch, then you will be made more than welcome and that’s a promise!
