Police wives planted across Bimshire land
Without doubt, Grace, called us to come on out
At Weymouth grounds, plenty words lips did spout
On ways to complement the Police Force;
By charitable deeds, they would enforce.
Plank by plank wives built up foundation’s base;
Welded talents rose from kitchen table,
And keenly cabinet did assemble;
On March twenty-six, nineteen eighty-four
Birth PWA, first on this shore.
Pledging their friendship, unity and strength,
Wives of Bajan policemen formed this club;
And this association is their hub,
Of grand charitable activities;
Blending their zeal and sensitivities;
Proudly wives wear their pin of allegiance;
Where’re they go, they stand out in the crowd;
As “Image” pens their thoughts as words allowed,
Of causes that are for the common good;
Beautiful projects are well understood.
Projects seed our scholarships and welfare;
With head, heart and soul running together
All hands, work in any kind of weather.
Our work, goes beyond, twenty-five years;
Bonded by those goals… of its pioneers.
