IPA Malta: News from a busy section!

Neville Mercieca, President IPA Malta

Dated 13-06-2017

Time passes quickly, and here we are celebrating our 53rd Anniversary. An anniversary is not just a celebration which is organised on an annual basis, but it is a yearly milestone which the association achieves together with its members and friends.
We try to make the IPA experience an unforgettable one where our members enjoy their time in a safe and healthy environment. With the kind of job we have, everyone needs those relaxing times amongst friends. Events organised by IPA Malta have become very popular and are attended by the majority of our members and their families.
This year, as Malta is also holding its turn for the presidency of the Council of the European Union, we tried to spread our events over a whole month so as not to disrupt police operations whilst giving the opportunity for our members to attend during non-busy periods. These past months have been very busy for the Malta Police force and it was not very easy to fit all events into the calendar, but I am happy to say that we managed, and all events were successful.
Activities started on 17 April with a Dynamic Pistol Shooting Competition at the Police Shooting Range where a good number of IPA members participated. This competition also paved the way to start our preparations for an International Pistol Shooting Competition being planned to coincide with our next anniversary in 2018, to which all IPA (worldwide) members will be invited to attend.
For this important milestone, IPA Malta has teamed up with the Easy School of Languages who will be assisting IPA members and their relatives visiting our island to study English. IPA Malta, in collaboration with the Easy School of Languages, will also organise an innovative event next summer to which all of you will be invited to attend, have fun and learn English.
As is our custom, on Sunday 27 April, a Thanksgiving Mass with refreshments was held at the Police headquarters. A Buffet Dinner was also organised on 5 May, to round off our events.
In September 2017, IPA Malta will be organising a weekend-break to Sicily. IPA members, who wish to join us or have further information, may send us their interest on This will be our final event for this term before our National Executive Committee elections planned for October.
Finally I wish to inform you that as from July, we should return to normal business (as the Maltese Presidency term for the Council of the European Union will be over) and will once again be able to assist members visiting our wonderful island.
