ONE of Newtown's most beloved bobbies on the beat has been left in no doubt how much he will be missed upon his retirement.

Dyfed Powys Police PCSO Graham Jennings is calling time on his long career this week.

To mark the occasion he was asked to attend a Post Office topper unveiling my Knit and Natter Newtown, a local group of craft enthusiasts who regular celebrate national and local events with bespoke toppers.

The group outdid themselves by crafting a wonderful woollen display featuring the town's most beloved police officer who has been a feature on its streets for the past 20 years.

PCSO Jenning's true great loves, policing and martial arts, took pride of place in the display.


Daughters, PS Charlotte Jennings, who has followed in her father's footsteps, and Isabelle Renshaw, were also at the unveiling to honour their proud father.

Graham said: "I had no idea what to expect today and I am very touched by the display.

"I am proud of serving this wonderful community for so long and have met some fantastic people over the years.

County Times:

"I am not sure what I will get up to in my retirement but I am sure Dyfed  Powys Police will continue to serve the community and protect the most vulnerable."

Paula Roberts of Knit and Natter Newtown said the group was keen to mark the popular officer's retirement.

"We heard he was retiring this year and we wanted to do something to thank him for all the years of hard work," she said. "Hopefully one day the toppers we have made as a group will feature in an exhibition in the town, including this one we have made to celebrate Graham."
