Tarvin can now offer a warm welcome to the new PCSO Jack Makin, who will be getting to know his new patch in the next few weeks. Sue Keers, who has been looking after Tarvin and Kelsall for some time, has moved to a new role in the Police Service.
Jack Makin is 31 and grew up in Helsby. For many years he was a ski instructor, dividing his time between the Chill Factor in Manchester and various European locations. He has been a PCSO for two years and has been working as part of the Rural Crime Team. He has a special interest, and specific training in Wildlife Crime. He is very aware that Cheshire's quiet and peaceful country lanes are not always as serene as they appear. He intends to create a strong presence within the agricultural sector.
When asked to define his role, Jack said "I see myself as a bridge between the community and my busy and hard -working colleagues in the Police Service. As well as dealing with many local incidents, I will have time to listen to people's concerns and gather the local knowledge that helps us keep people safe and secure."
At the moment all PCSO surgeries must be virtual rather than face to face. But Jack encourages anyone to stop him as he patrols the area and pass on the information and knowledge that he needs. To contact him you can email him at Jack.Makin@cheshire.pnn.police.uk
ED: We wish Jack every success in his new role and hope that he soon becomes part of the everyday village scene.
