Latest Incidents:

  • On the 15th, a number of shed breaks were reported to the police from the Frodsham area. An offender also tried to break into a garage in Christleton, but was thwarted by additional locks fitted to the garage door. Please consider how you would get into your shed if you lost your key! If you could get in easily by prising the lock off, then it is just as easy for a thief — time to upgrade your security!
  • On the 16th & 17th, we took reports of two thefts of fuel, 500 litres were taken after a garage in Huxley was broken into and an unknown quantity was stolen from a yard in Backford.
  • There have again been numerous reports about suspicious vans and vehicles, hanging round apparently empty houses and building sites and going up driveways. These vehicles invariably make off as soon as the occupants realise that someone has seen them or appears to be taking details of their vehicle. Please continue to report such suspicious activity as police always respond to such reports, which helps to deter crime.
  • The front and rear number plates were stolen off a vehicle in Chester Road, Helsby on the 19th. Please report any such incident in case the stolen plates are being used to commit other crimes.
  • On 20th, police took a report that a stable in Tilston was broken into overnight. It really is essential that owners mark their property and also lock it within a secure locker inside the stable. Theft of tack is an on-going and widespread problem. The same night, a garage, also in the same area, was also broken into and a number of tools were stolen.
  • On 23rd, a report was taken about post being tampered with that had been left in an individual's private post box on their gate post. Please be aware that such post boxes are more vulnerable to attack than post pushed through a front door. Many insurance companies now have exclusions in their policies so that they are not liable for such thefts! If you do have such a post box, please ensure that it is sufficiently strong and tamper proof.

    In June 1991 villagers refused to be downhearted by what was described as "appalling weather" and hence helped to still raise £1,500 at the 20th Tarvin Carnival. 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...
