Smoke alarms save lives

Encouraing residents to test smoke alarms

Smoke alarms can be the difference between life and death.

Research suggests that you are at least four times more likely to die in a house fire if you don’t have a smoke alarm.

That’s why we're urging residents to purchase alarms for their homes.

Concerning rise in deliberately set fires

Cheshire Fire and Police join forces

Firefighters and police officers are concerned by a spate of fires in the Wilmslow area that are believed to have been started deliberately.

The spike in arson incidents, particularly in the suburban town of Handforth, has coincided with the recent spell of hot weather.

The fires have predominantly been in open spaces, including in parks and scrubland.

Recent fires in the area involving tree scrub, rubbish, cars and wheelie bins are believed to have been started deliberately.

Such fires can lead to larger, potentially life-threatening blazes and they also take vital resources away from other incidents and Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service and Cheshire Constabulary are working in partnership to tackle the problem.

Leighton Hospital

The performance of our local Leighton Hospital in Crewe is appalling.The number of patients waiting more that four hours for A&E has more than doubled in the last year.

12,200 patients,17% of all patients, had to wait longer than four hours in A&E.

Out of the 139 Hospital trusts in England,Leighton is near the bottom of the league table at 121.

NONE of the targets for ambulance call out times were met, thus putting lives at risk.

The hospital cannot blame the poor performance on lack of staff.Since 2011 the number of nurses has risen by a whopping 39% and the number of doctors has risen by 27%.

The hospital management has badly let down local people, who are not getting the health service they are paying for in their taxes.Unless there is immediate improvement in the performance of Leighton Hospital, the Government should put in a new management team, who will deliver the first class local health service that local people expect and deserve.

Yours faithfully,

Cllr. Brian Silvester

For Britain Party

Chairman 'For Cheshire'

Garden gnomes in Wistaston

Reporter Jonathan White, Wistaston

Garden gnomes in Wistaston that received local, national and worldwide fame last year have become the victims of a targeted attack.

Laurence Perry, aged 78, of Westfield Drive in Wistaston, Cheshire woke up on the morning of Monday 13th August 2018 to discover that twenty-five of his gnomes had been smashed or stolen from his garden and land in front of his home.

All Laurence’s gnomes were superglued to a wooden base panel and ten were either smashed or stolen from a wooden shelf at the front of his garden, whilst a further fifteen gnomes were wantonly destroyed or thieved from a wooden base around a tree on land in front of his house.

The gnomes made national and international news last year when Cheshire East Council removed Laurence’s gnomes after receiving a complaint. The subsequent story received worldwide publicity including the BBC, Daily Mail, Express, Mirror and Telegraph along with newspapers in India and the USA. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-40644575

Laurence is a keen gardener who always checks on his premises before heading for bed. He believes that the replacement gnomes were attacked either late on Sunday night or in the early hours of Monday morning. He has previously had one gnome stolen, but it was safely returned by the guilty party the next day. Laurence believes that this incident was a targeted attack by one or more individuals, but he has no idea who would bear a grudge against the gnomes or himself.

The good news is that kind individuals have rallied around in support of Laurence’s mission to bring a smile to people’s faces. A builder has already donated two 4ft ‘Mr & Mrs’ garden gnomes, local residents have donated gnomes and Christian Davies from Alan Davies Car Sales in Crewe has offered to sponsor new gnomes.

Laurence Perry said: “It is sad that people’s enjoyment of the gnomes has been destroyed by one or more persons unknown. However, good has come from bad as I have already received replacement gnomes from generous members of the public. If anyone else would like to donate a gnome to me then you are welcome to drop it off at my house on Westfield Drive in Wistaston. I thank everyone for their continued support.”

Nfib Alert - Bogus Overseas Officers


Fraudsters are contacting overseas students and visitors who are in the UK via their mobile phone or social network account and purporting to represent UK or foreign law enforcement.
After fraudsters have claimed to work with their respective embassy or government, they tell the victim that there is evidence in the form of forged documentation or parcels which implicate them in a crime such as money laundering, fraud or immigration offences.
After demanding further personal details from the victim such as their name, current address and copies of personal documentation, they threaten the victim by suggesting a warrant exists for their arrest which will result in their deportation and imprisonment unless they transfer a payment to them in order to cancel the arrest or pay a fine. Once the money is transferred, all contact between the victim and the fraudster is severed.

What You Need To Do:

  • Police will never ask you to withdraw to transfer money so “it can be checked”, neither would they demand money to in order to cancel an arrest.
  • Do not be tricked into giving a fraudster access to your personal or financial details no matter who they say they are; protect your information and have the confidence to question and refuse unusual requests.
  • If you have made a payment to someone claiming to be the police or government department, and you think you might be a victim of fraud, you can report it to Action Fraud any time of the day or night using our online fraud reporting tool. You can also get advice about fraud or cyber-crime by calling 0300 123 2040.
  • If you are a student you can ask your Student Union or University for advice, help and support.

Don’t lose your right to vote – sign up to the Electoral Register!


Cheshire East Council is urging people not to miss out on the chance to vote as the annual renewal of the Electoral Register gets under way.

Households are being sent renewal forms over the coming weeks (16 August to 2 September), which they need to respond to as soon as possible.

Those not on the Electoral Register cannot vote in elections.

Electoral Registration Officer Kath O’Dwyer, who is acting chief executive of Cheshire East Council, is urging residents to respond to their registration forms.

She said: “Voting is a vital civil right and the lifeblood of democracy – but if you are not registered to vote you risk losing ‘your voice’ at the ballot box.”

“I would appeal to all the people of Cheshire East – whatever your politics – to make sure you respond to the form to stay on the register. Don’t miss out on the chance to vote.”

Registering to vote in elections is a legal requirement.

It only takes a few minutes to check the information on the form and respond using one of the options on the front page of the form.

The next elections scheduled for the voters of Cheshire East are the borough-wide town, parish and borough council elections in May 2019.

The ‘drop-in’ sessions will focus around working with animations, computer coding work and 3D printing, as well as the popular construction game Minecraft.

Councillor Jos Saunders, Cheshire East Council cabinet member for children and families, said: “This is an excellent opportunity for children to have fun, learn and develop their skills during their holidays. Parents are able to watch their children play and develop their creative skills and they can get involved too!

“We are delighted to be able to unveil this initiative, which will provide up to 20 hours of fun and creative learning activities in Crewe for youngsters throughout August. We would like to thank Crewe Town Council for their continued support.”

The activities are:

Electronic orchestra

Charity fundraising

Reporter Jonathan White, Wistaston

Charity fundraising friends Roy Price, 51 from Crewe, and Ian Jones, 46 also from Crewe, have thus far this year raised over £2,700 by pushing a 100kg wheelbarrow and wearing a bear costume respectively on a fourteen mile walk from Crewe to Nantwich and back, via a Garden Party at The Woodside in Wistaston and a charity night at the Bombay Restaurant in Crewe.

The pairs next challenge on Sunday 9th September 2018 is another walk involving a wheelbarrow and the bear costume, but this time they intend to walk up a mountain! They plan to climb Snowdon, which is the highest mountain in Wales and has an elevation of 1,085 metres above sea level.

Roy and Ian are both raising money for the Macmillan Chemotherapy Suite at Leighton Hospital in Crewe. Roy in memory of his wife - Ruth Price - who passed away in February this year from secondary breast cancer. Ruth was treated at the Macmillan Cancer Unit at Leighton Hospital. Ian in memory of his mother - Janet Jones - who also passed away from cancer.

Their target is to raise £5,000 and in late-September this year Roy will aim to climb the Mount Kilimanjaro volcano in Tanzania - the highest mountain in Africa. In readiness for Kilimanjaro Roy is receiving training from EDGE Travel Worldwide via their ‘Sofa to Summit’ programme which includes health, nutrition, fitness and training along with UK walks. Roy’s latest challenge will be part of his training.

Roy Price said: “I faced my 51st birthday without Ruth, the first time in 30 years without her. It’s been hard, very hard but the fantastic encouragement and community spirit has spurred me along. Myself and Ian would like to thank all the individuals and organisations who have given us their generous support.”

The Vikings are coming …..


Tatton’s Old Hall is bracing itself for a Viking invasion, 1,000 years since Norsemen first crossed the Cheshire borders. And these ones are no less terrifying!

On Sunday, August 12 The Vikings of Middle England will be staging a dynamic and exciting re-enactment event in the atmospheric grounds of Tatton’s Tudor Old Hall.

Witness the clash of steel and hear the smash of axe on shield as these hardened warriors demonstrate Viking combat skills. The Vikings of Middle England are renowned for their historical authenticity and their ‘realistic, exciting and entertaining battle displays.

It’s not all about battle and ‘bloodshed’; around 30 re-enactors will be setting up an authentic Viking camp at the Old Hall and demonstrating the domestic side of Viking life. They will be joined by The Viking Long Ship Experience who will show that Vikings were traders as well as raiders and invaders. Visitors can learn about the Viking way of life through other living history activities such as story telling, blacksmithing, cooking over open fires and coin-striking.

A number of other displays will keep young and older visitors entertained from storytelling to the opportunity to try on armour and test out their own expertise with an archer’s longbow, for a small charge.

Old Hall steward Mick Ricketts said: “In the old Norse tongue the word Viking means raider or pirate and everyone loves a pirate, don’t they? Pirates are jolly but pirates are also ruthless and good at fighting and plundering. Viking Sunday brings a whole era back to life within the picturesque and normally

tranquil setting of the Old Hall. Be prepared for the crash of steel on steel or the thud of steel on shield but also find out about Viking crafts and culture.”

Viking Sunday at the Old Hall Sunday, August 12

£5,000 council grant on hand to help community groups support local needs


Communities across the borough can tap into a £200,000 pot of money from Cheshire East Council to boost local initiatives.

Activities that could benefit include support or training for volunteers and the purchase of equipment to improve the quality of life for local people.

Voluntary, community and faith sector organisations, particularly those within hard-to-reach communities, are urged to make applications now. The next round of the early help and community grant scheme is open and groups wishing to apply must do so by 28 September.

Each application can be for up to £5,000 but strict criteria are applied. Organisations seeking to benefit are encouraged to explore the options and application process through the council’s website*.

Successful organisations must report back to the council on how they have spent their allocation.  The scheme is meant to be competitive, open and transparent, enabling the council to distribute limited resources to support and encourage initiatives, especially in hard-to-reach communities.

Organisations must show a defined impact with clear outcomes.

An applicant can receive financial support to meet the running costs of a new activity group, such as computer and internet tuition, introducing a new sport or the development of personal skills, including training in volunteering, health and safety, sports coaching or food hygiene.

Councillor Liz Wardlaw, Cheshire East Council cabinet member for health, said: “The early help and community grants scheme is key to the delivery of the council’s ‘connected communities’ strategy and meets with the authority’s core values, one of which is to enable people to live well and for longer.

“Vibrant voluntary, community and faith sectors are seen as vital to developing strong and engaging communities and the small grants scheme is aimed at generating significant local activity to produce a positive impact.

“Improved outcomes can help build resilience, empowering people to manage their health and wellbeing, reduce isolation, minimising health risks and hospital admissions.”

Council’s highways teams take advantage of dry summer


Cheshire East Council’s highways teams have taken full advantage of the long, dry spell to ‘crack on’ with major road repairs around the borough.

Around 40 miles (62.5km) of roadway have been completely resurfaced so far and 7,459 potholes have been repaired already to keep the borough’s roads safe for users.

Cheshire East Highways has carried out repairs in Wilmslow, Crewe, Nantwich, Congleton, Macclesfield, Poynton and Knutsford, with many more towns and villages set to receive road improvements in the weeks and months ahead.

Councillor Glen Williams, Cheshire East Council deputy cabinet member for environment, said: “Our crews have been working in extremely testing conditions owing to the recent hot weather and I wish to thank them for their professionalism and commitment to the task in hand.

“This long, dry spell has been helpful but on some days the heat has made working conditions for staff extremely challenging. However, we are still on target to complete the schedule of works planned across the borough this summer.”

Cheshire East Council has now unveiled its extensive highways investment programme for 2018-19.

The council assesses the needs of the highways network, maximising the value of maintenance and improvement works within the funding available, for the benefit of residents and businesses.

The £20m capital programme is extensive, with more than 70 carriageway improvement schemes scheduled, from minor repairs to total resurfacing works. More than 70 carriageway patching schemes are programmed. There are 16 projects to repair bridges and other structures, plus 22 road safety improvements, including speed management initiatives.

The 18/19 investment programme will also see the completion of the four-year LED street lighting project, with a further 8,500 street lights scheduled for the switch.

Councillor Williams added: “This is a very comprehensive programme of works, emphasising our full commitment to improving the standard of our road network while, at the same time, introducing important safety measures where required.

“Where road closures are needed, residents and businesses will always be kept informed and we hope our residents and road users will understand that some inconvenience is unavoidable, when schemes have to be carried out in their area.

“Our highways role is one of the most important services this council delivers and we are constantly striving to achieve a road network to be proud of.”

The highways investment programme, which is now published on the council’s website, does not include the major road infrastructure schemes, such as Congleton Link Road, Middlewich Eastern Bypass, A500 dualling and the Crewe package of works in Leighton, as these are delivered as part of a separate strategic infrastructure programme.

The council’s highways service is responsible for repairs and management of the borough’s 1,677 miles of roads and 1,100 miles of footways in addition to the maintenance of bridges, street lighting, signage and 372 miles of cycleways. It is the biggest council asset – valued at nearly £6 billion.

To view the full programme of scheduled works and how it will benefit the roads and footways in your area visit: https://bit.ly/2ATfykI

The standard of hockey was amazing and the event was well supported. All monies raised go directly into Blood Cancer research. As the local Bloodwise branch, it's great to be fund raising locally in this way.
