A massive special day for the Glamorgan Constabulary Police Re-enactment Group as they attended the Northern Divisions South Wales Police Emergency Open Day at the Tonyrefail Leisure Centre grounds. All three services were in attendance including the Army, tractors, a fairground and our mobile jail with two Victorian Policemen. Three thousand nine hundred people had entered the arena by 11 am and continued to grow during the afternoon in the searing heat of the day. The police horses and police dogs display were a big hit with everybody, and the Victorian jail was busy with photoshoots all day long.
Over sixty police officers and police cadets were there to help the big crowds with water in what was declared the hottest day in the UK.
The organizers gathered them all together for a photo shoot to celebrate a great and well-organized event.

A WALK THROUGH HISTORY
The Glamorgan Constabulary Police Re-enactment Groups sergeant Paul William Harris accompanied by Petty Officer Allen Hill took a walk through history event at Margam Park, South Wales on Sunday.
There they got involved with other re-enactors with their artifacts of the era they were covering, from Neapolitan to WW1. They were invited to have hands-on demonstrations of the weapons used in that period as well.
A lot of effort went into the static displays, which showed how the people lived, cooked, slept, and how they entertained themselves as they got ready for war.
By far the biggest draw was the 41st Foot, Re-enactment Society who fired a cannon along with their long-barreled muskets. Around 12 Napoleonic soldiers were involved in this display, demonstrating life for the soldiers in their encampment.
It was a great and entertaining day for Sgt., Harris and Petty Officer Hill, who said: "The attention to detail on all camps was astonishing."
A big day for the Swansea Bus Museum as they put on the 'Festival of Buses' event at their depot in Swansea. Hundreds of visitors turned out some just for a ride in these beautifully restore double-deckers down to the Mumbles and back. There was lots to see and do inside the garage with plenty of stalls, eats, bus rides and a chance to climb aboard the restored double-deckers. The Glamorgan Constabulary Police Re-enactment Group were there with their mobile jail, a chance to try the Victorian handcuffs on for a photoshoot in their prison. The event started at 10 am until 4 pm.
Skewen Motor Club
Classic Car Event Gnoll Country Park
The weather was just right for the Skewen Motor Club Classic Car Show on Sunday, sunshine all day long. The classic car show at the Knoll Country Park grounds in Neath drew in hundreds of people out for their Sunday afternoons entertainment.
Dozens of classic cars, landrover and motorbikes were on show for the enthusiasts. A fairground kept the kids happy, as did the burger van and ice cream vendors.
A big attraction was the Victorian jail supplied by the Glamorgan Constabulary Police Re-enactment Group. They were kept busy all day long with photoshoots of children in prison, some wearing victorian handcuffs.
Sergeant Paul William Harris said: "This is a beautiful setting to hold such an event in Knoll Park. I have received wonderful comments on our Victorian jail and the uniforms and artifacts of that era."

Bridgend Police Open day 2019
A big day and an extraordinary event in the Newbridge Leisure Centre, Bridgend for the Glamorgan Constabulary Police Re-enactment Group.
The South Wales Police put on their annual Police Open Day which attracted hundreds of visitors on a warm and sunny day.
At this event, we had our mobile jail which was accompanied by a beautiful black horse 'Cestyn' and our mascot a Shetland pony, called 'Bobby,' from the Welsh Horse Yeomanry Display Team.
Cestyn was ridden by Gareth Blythe dressed in his mounted ceremonial Victorian uniform, and he looked an impressive sight for hundreds of people for photos with their smartphones.
The mobile jail was busy all day long with kids dying to get inside for that unique photo. Once inside they were shackled with Victorian handcuffs and with a promise if they behaved a bowl of porridge.
Sgt Paul William Harris was on hand to make sure all rules of being in jail are carried out before the photoshoot.
This well-organized event started at 11 am and went on until 3 pm.
