“ TO GUARD MY PEOPLE”

 

The Glamorgan Constabulary Police Re-enactment Group are dedicated to the history of policing through the ages.

 

The group uses uniforms of the Victorian and Edwardian era and many artefacts used are authentic from 1889 to 1962 period.

 

The group has its own mobile police station where children and adults can enter the gaol, try on a police hat/helmet for a photo shoot.

 

In addition to the gaol the group has a mobile police museum, artefacts from the Victorian era to 1962 are displayed on a table in a gazebo.

 

Duties undertaken by the group vary from meet and greet, escort duties (carnivals), school education shows, charity fund collecting.

The Glamorgan Constabulary Police Re-enactment Group was invited to attend the South Wales Police open fun day at Cyfarthfa Park, Merthyr Tydfil, with the beautiful Cyfarthfa Castle open to the public in the background, the setting was set for a stunning day.

 

There was something for everybody there, hot air balloon, miniature go cart racing, miniature train rides, the SWP dog displays and of course us with our mobile jail.

 

All three services attended with their own displays, South Wales Fire and Rescue service actually attached a 2-inch hose for the kids to aim at a target of 50 mtrs.

 

Seargent Harris from the GCPRG said: "This is by far the best open fun day we have attended. SWP support team have been excellent with their help and advice. It has been well organized and planned, our mobile jail has been busy all day with photo shoots with the kids and families. And above all the weather was sunny all day which made this a fantastic event."
