Safety first for summer cooking
With the summer holidays in full swing, many children across Cheshire, Halton and Warrington will be spending more time in the kitchen.
But whether they're lending a hand or simply seeking a snack, it's important to make sure that they know the hazards of a hot hob.

Biker Down course at Macclesfield Fire Station
If you were the first on the scene of an accident involving a biker, would you know what to do? Would you know who is most at risk, how to protect the area or whether you should remove the helmet of a downed rider?
Actions taken in the first few moments after an accident can be crucial in minimising injuries and can make a real difference to the lives of those involved. But there can be some uncertainty about what to do in these situations.
A Biker Down training course is being be held on Friday 22nd August at Macclesfield Fire Station, starting at 6:00pm.
Places are limited, so please book place on a course by sending an email to- email@example.com
