Chaplain: John Rowley

I joined Merseyside Police in June 1978 and was posted to ‘L’ Division, St Helens.  I was soon to move to Sutton box to work 8 beat.  In November 1979 I was moved to Newton-le-Willows to work with fellow committee member Ray Muspratt as my Sergeant.  In 1989 I moved on to pastures new, to ‘C’ Division.  Apart from six months attachment to the C.I.D. I have always worked in uniform and for the last few years of my service I was a neighbourhood officer.


Since my retirement in 2008 I have been able to renew old friendships.  The St Helens branch of NARPO is very friendly and there is a lot of good work done mainly behind the scenes.  I was recently voted onto the committee and I look forward to helping and serving our members for as long as you will have me.

I am currently the secretary of the Widnes branch of the Christian Motorcyclists Association.  I also assist with the running of the North West Bikers church.
