A locked pedal cycle was stolen from the bike racks at Capenhurst rail station this week. If you find in necessary to leave your bike unattended anywhere, please use a good quality lock. Unfortunately, many cheap locks are easy to cut through or to force open.

Two sheds on the allotments in Tarporley were broken into this weekend. Most allotments are only frequented by regular locals. It is likely that the offender knew what was in the sheds. If you have seen anyone unusual hanging about these allotments, please contact the police.The police nationally are trying to raise public awareness of Child Sexual Exploitation.
