Fire

Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service is offering some important fire safety tips in the run up to the festive period:

  • On the 1st day of Christmas:
    Check your Christmas tree lights conform to the British Standard.
  • On the 2nd day of Christmas:
    Never place candles near your Christmas tree or furnishings.
  • On the 3rd day of Christmas:
    Make sure your family and visitors know what to do in an emergency — have an escape plan.
  • On the 4th day of Christmas:
    Decorations can burn easily — Don't attach them to lights or heaters.
  • On the 5th day of Christmas:
    Never overload electrical sockets and switch Christmas lights off and unplug them before you go to bed.
  • On the 6th day of Christmas:
    The risk of accidents, especially in the kitchen, is greater after alcohol is consumed.
  • On the 7th day of Christmas:
    Most fires start in the kitchen — never leave cooking unattended.
  • On the 8th day of Christmas
    If you are planning to celebrate with fireworks, store them in a metal box, read the instructions, never go back to a lit firework and keep a bucket of water nearby.
  • On the 9th day of Christmas:
    If you smoke, make sure cigarettes are completely extinguished before you go to bed.
  • On the 10th day of Christmas:
    Check the battery in your smoke alarm and use Christmas as a reminder to clean it and remove dust.
  • On the 11th day of Christmas:
    Keep candles, lighters and matches out of reach of children. Never leave burning candles unattended.
  • On the 12th day of Christmas:
    Take the time to check on elderly relatives and neighbours this Christmas — make sure they are fire safe.

Many of you will remember that Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWaC) was intending to produce a Traveller Development Plan Document (TDPD). This could have had an impact on Tarvin, because land east of Tarporley Road had previously been identified as suitable for a permanent Gypsy/Traveller site, even though it is subject to a life-time tenancy. However, a decision by the...
