Strangeways Commemorative Tie Pin 25th Anniversary

It has been agreed to produce a Limited Edition tie pin in acknowledgement of the 25th Anniversary of the Strangeways Riot April 1990 – 2015.

The local branch and members who served at Manchester have continually acknowledged the event in April 1990, which changed the face of the Prison Service.

Retired members from Manchester approached the NEC to assist them in acknowledging this milestone taking place in April 2015.

The Unions providers have assisted this event through donations and all monies raised through the sale of the tie pin will be given to a local charity.

Tie pins can be purchased through local committees at a cost of £3.00 each or in batches of 10 at £25.00. All cheques should be made payable to the POA and branch committees are asked to collate numbers and place orders through Carol Strahan at carol@poauk.org.uk.

As stated there is a limited amount of badges available on a first come first serve basis. Branch committees may purchase these from branch funds if they so wish.

Thanking you in anticipation of your support and co-operation.

Yours sincerely


General Secretary
