ROAD SAFETY — During the hot weather, some motorists may be tempted to have an extra alcoholic drink to cool off, before getting in their car. Local and specialist officers are aware that more people will drink at all hours of the day and so will stop and breathalyse motorists, whatever the time of day.

BURGLARIES — Valuable equipment is often left out and windows left open during the long hot summer days, providing easy pickings for burglars. Officers are targeting vulnerable areas and promoting security advice wherever possible.

ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR — Irresponsible drinking in public places will result in alcohol being seized and offending behavior being dealt with appropriately.

  • The Wimpey building site on Tarporley Road in Tarvin was broken into earlier in the month. The toilets and a forklift truck were vandalised and diesel and various tools were stolen. Please keep an eye open for any suspicious activity on building sites near you and report anything suspicious.
  • There were several reports of suspicious activity on Old Coach Road in Kelsall where two males were reported approaching properties to sell miscellaneous items such as dusters. When patrols arrived there was no trace of the males. This kind of door to door selling is often a front for other criminal activity. Police will deal robustly with anyone engaged in this activity. We advise everyone to remain vigilant and do not open your door to strangers if you feel uncomfortable doing so and report any such activity ASAP to the police.
  • A bag full of clothing intended for charity was stolen from a property on Church Street in Kelsall. Three males were promptly located and arrested.
  • Local officers have been made aware of a number of youths visiting the fishery in Mouldsworth and purposely harming the resident ducks. The youths were identified and advised about their behaviour and the location will be closely monitored.

We hope that you have all been enjoying the recent good weather! Although it is hot, please continue to close all windows and doors, particularly at night to avoid tempting opportunistic burglars.

Despite what at time amounted to torrential rain the show went on with the then traditional parade of floats round the village, with the first prize going to the Tarvin Primary School. Again in those days, there was the...
