Association of Retired Police Officers Costa Blanca South


The annual ARPO Christmas Party was held again at Portico Mar on Saturday, 16 December.  Although the maximum number of bookings (70) had been taken, some members or guests were unable to attend on the night because of medical conditions or other reasons and we ended up with 61 members and guests enjoying the festivities.

As usual the menu and staff service were excellent, along with a totally Free Bar this time throught the evening.  The entertainment was provided by our friendly duo, Streetwise, aka Janie and Ian Street, who managed to get everyone up dancing or singing along to the old favourites!

The raffle prizes this year were made up of Portico Mar Meal Vouchers, which were warmly received.  A big thank you to Linda Peters and Dreena Wharton for their stirling work in selling the tickets.

A big vote of thanks to Mike and Linda Peters for arranging the event so efficiently once again, even down to a cork board Table Plan to make things easier and our thanks also to the excellent staff at Portico Mar, not forgetting 'Miss ARPO 2017" (ha! ha!) for collecting the tips for the staff.
