“THE SWANSWAY STAND” IS THE NEW NAME FOR NANTWICH TOWN FC’S MAIN STAND


Dabber’s delight at main stand sponsorship deal with

Crewe based Swansway Group.

12th July 2021

Swansway Group, a family owned business with car and van dealerships across the North West and Midlands, is proud to announce a three year sponsorship deal with Nantwich Town FC, to rename their main stand “The Swansway Stand”.

Swansway Group is a major employer in Crewe and Nantwich, with Crewe Audi, Crewe Volkswagen, Crewe SEAT, CUPRA Crewe, Swansway Jaguar Crewe, Motor Match Crewe an Accident Repair Centre and all of their Head Office functions in Crewe. This support for Nantwich Town FC, a semi-professional football club playing in the Northern Premier League, is another example of the Group’s continuing commitment to invest in the areas where they do business.

This agreement was especially meaningful for one of Swansway Group’s Directors David Smyth and his son George, who have been long standing fans of the Nantwich team and regularly attend matches to show their support.

David said,

“Swansway Group has been based in Crewe for nearly 18 years and we have always been grateful for all the support we have received from the people of Crewe and Nantwich.

This was a particularly special opportunity for my family and me to show some reciprocal support to an organisation that does so much to engage and entertain local people, young and old. Nantwich Town Football Club has been in existence since 1884 and it is with great pleasure that we have been able to contribute to its ongoing success and enduring legacy.”

Dave Clapp, Club Director said,

“The impact on our club budget due to the lack of ticket sales for match attendances during the various lockdowns, has been significant. Swansway Group’s support for us has been both welcome and timely. We very much appreciate their interest in our continuing success both as a team and as a provider of grass-roots training for up-and-coming talent. And we are looking forward to an exciting season together as the pandemic restrictions are lifted.”

Welcome to the July edition of the Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service e-Newsletter.


Road safety campaign launched in Cheshire

A road safety campaign urging road users to ‘Share The Road’ has been launched in Cheshire and calls upon the public to be kind and considerate to each other to help keep each other safe on the roads.
With the government no longer encouraging people to work from home from 19 July and the volume of traffic expected to increase, Cheshire’s emergency services are asking the public to look out for one another to prevent serious injury.
More than 280 people were seriously injured on Cheshire’s roads in 2020 – that’s more than five people per week and sadly… 29 people lost their lives.
The campaign, which has seen all partners from the Cheshire Road Safety Group come together, aims to raise awareness that all road users have the right to use the roads safely, regardless of how they choose to travel on it, and inconsiderate actions can have serious life-changing consequences for innocent road users.

Be water aware

Drowning is amongst the leading causes of accidental death in the UK. We want to make people safer by making them aware of the risks and dangers when around water, what to do if they fall into water and how to help someone who is in trouble in water.
  • 223 people accidentally drowned in the UK in 2019
  • 44% of these people just happened to be near water and had no intention of entering the water
  • 82% of these fatalities were male

We Need Your Support To Tackle Loneliness


Good afternoon all,
I hope that you are well.
We need your support! The residents at Hollymere and Primrose House in Haslington have not been able to be part of our wider community over this last year due to restrictions with Care home's because of COVID-19.
We are inviting you to drop off a flower or plant to the front doors of the home, to plant in the homes community garden. Since talking to the people at the home, we feel that this would be a great way to show that our wider community care about these residents, and will remind them of this each time that they look out of the window.
You may also wish to leave a small note with a kind message.
When people do not feel part of their community, they may feel more lonely, and therefore become more susceptible to crime.
We're also hoping that the person reading this message, feels more involved with their wider community by being part of something positive which will make others safer and happier.
Work with us to tackle crime and loneliness, together.
Thank you for your time.
Kind regards,

Cheshire East Council warns – Covid cases soaring


Following the announcement by the Prime Minister on Monday to move to step 4 of the roadmap, Cheshire East Council is warning that Covid cases are soaring across the borough.

Covid-19 infection rates of the highly transmissible Delta variant continue to increase at an alarming rate in the borough (474 cases per 100,000 in the latest week 10 July to 16 July) and have more than trebled since the beginning of the month.

Positive cases among those aged 18 to 30 and who remain un-vaccinated are particularly high especially in Macclesfield and Crewe areas.

Leader of Cheshire East Council, Councillor Sam Corcoran, said: “The huge increase in Covid-19 cases is extremely worrying and this will undoubtedly lead to more disruption, more hospitalisations and sadly more deaths.

“We have heard the government announce the ending of most restrictions, but I am strongly urging our residents to continue to be cautious as we might not hit the peak of infections for several more weeks and it is therefore vital for all of us to get vaccinated and to wear a mask to protect others in crowded or close proximity settings.”

Councillor Craig Browne, deputy leader of Cheshire East Council, said: “I have said it before, but this pandemic is far from over. We have a duty to ensure our residents are aware of the impact it is continuing to have, predominantly among those who are still not fully vaccinated.

“I would encourage anyone who has not yet done so, to make an appointment for their vaccination as soon as possible.”

Dr Matt Tyrer, director of public health at Cheshire East Council, said: “This is a very serious situation and it’s going to get far worse before it gets any better.

“Working alongside the other Directors of Public Health across Cheshire and Merseyside, working together as the Champs Public Health Collaborative, collectively we have issued a joint statement asking those living and working in the area to go above and beyond the minimum required, in the light of rising Covid-19 infections locally and changes to the national restrictions.

“People are being asked to take their individual and collective role to reduce the transmission of the virus incredibly seriously, and not see the 19th July as a reason to stop all behaviours that have slowed down the spread of the virus over the past sixteen months, especially when in close contact with others.

“This is very important, as infection rates are high in the area and historically, the North West of England has been more impacted by the virus than other areas, due to structural inequalities. This means recovery from the pandemic will take longer unless residents continue to take steps to minimise harm right now.

“This advice will also support local businesses and the wider economy, as increased transmission of the virus will result in major disruptions if staff are unable to work due to being unwell with COVID-19 and legally required to self-isolate.”

People living, visiting, and working in Cheshire East are advised to:

  • Get fully vaccinated – it's shown to be safe and effective against the virus, including new variants and is the best way to keep yourself from getting seriously ill. It also reduces the risk of passing the virus on to someone else;
  • Be kind and considerate of others who may be feeling extremely nervous about the further lifting of restrictions;
  • Continue wearing face coverings in crowded indoor areas where social distancing cannot be followed, such as supermarkets and on public transport, in health and social care settings, such as hospitals, care homes and GP surgeries, and where it would make others feel more comfortable;
  • Continue social distancing by not unnecessarily being in crowded areas and continuing to work from home if possible;
  • Try to meet others outside where possible;
  • Continue to practice good hand hygiene, in particular hand washing;
  • Keep getting tested - everyone should undertake twice weekly rapid symptom free testing using Lateral Flow Tests (LFT). If people experience generally associated symptoms such as a headache, a stuffed or runny nose, tiredness or weakness, aches and pains, sore throat or diarrhoea, they should take an LFT and follow up with a PCR test if the LFT test is positive. If people have any of the main symptoms of Covid-19 such as a high temperature, a new continuous cough or loss or change to their sense of smell or taste they must stay at home and book a PCR test;
  • Self-isolate if you have been in contact with someone who has Covid-19, especially if you work in a high-risk setting.

Businesses and workplaces in Cheshire East are also asked to:

  • Continue to adhere to Covid-19 working safely guidance, including provision of washing facilities and proper ventilation with external fresh air;
  • Continue to engage with the Test, Trace and Isolate process, and increase testing if your workplace has had an outbreak;
  • Encourage your employees to get tested if they suspect they have Covid-19 symptoms and self-isolate if positive;
  • Encourage your employees to have both doses of the Covid-19 vaccine when it is offered.

For the latest information and advice on the move to Step 4, testing, vaccinations and self-isolation support, go to the council’s webpage at: www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/covid19

Sling Your Hook Campaign Launched By Neighbourhood Watch To Tackle Scams

Sling Your Hook Campaign Launched By Neighbourhood Watch To Tackle Scams


Dear Jan
We are excited to tell you more about our SLING YOUR HOOK campaign running throughout July to help tackle scams
WHY ‘SLING YOUR HOOK’?
The campaign taps into the psychology that scammers use to hook people in, helping you stay one step ahead and protect yourself and your loved ones against the increasing variety of scams happening every day. We’ve identified the following five behaviours scammers commonly use:

  • They imply they’re doing you a favour (reciprocity)
  • They indicate everyone else is doing this (social proof)
  • They say your only chance is to act now (urgency)
  • They act like they’re similar to you, so you like them and want to please them (connection)
  • They ask you to do one little thing which makes you do more (commitment).

We also know that often victims of scams report that in hindsight they felt something wasn’t quite right at the time.  This campaign aims to raise awareness of the tactics scammers use and encourages people to ‘stop and think’ if something doesn’t FEEL, SEEM, LOOK or SOUND right.  This allows them time to trust your gut instinct and help prevent becoming a scam victim.
“Everyone likes to feel special. But watch out! If a stranger is going out of their way for you, something fishy may be going on instead. Scammers like to offer one-off deals and favours. Don’t be afraid to tell them no.” John Hayward-Cripps, CEO of Neighbourhood Watch Network
How can you support this campaign?
  • LEARN: Visit our scams website pages to learn more about common scams, preventing scams, reporting scams, supporting victims and a scams campaign toolkit
  • SHARE: Follow us on our Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / LinkedIn channels and share our posts       
  • JOIN THE CONVERSATION: Join us for an online talk (details below)
ONLINE TALKS
We are delivering a series of scams awareness online talks in partnership with the Dedicated Card and Payment Crime Unit (DCPCU), the National Trading Standards Scams Team (NTSST) and Avast.
Anyone can attend, but we are now running waiting lists only for all the webinars apart from one! Last week we ran an online talk on ‘Exploring the psychology behind scams and how scammers are so effective at their crimes’. It was so popular we have decided to re-run it on 27th July, 5pm.  Click here to book your place. Please note – this event will not be recorded.

RHS show garden celebrates the Parkland’s wild side


This year, garden designer and ecologist Michael McGarr has designed the RHS and Tatton Park Rewilding feature garden. Their 10 metre by 10 metre area of showground has been left to ‘grow out’, allowing otherwise unseen plants to be showcased where they chose to grow, alongside Michael’s designed space. The result is both easy on the eye and easy to manage. And the aim? To encourage gardeners to consider site-specific planting, biodiversity and, for at least a corner of our gardens, to be welcoming to wildlife.

Live and let live

McGarr worked closely with Tatton Park’s Head Gardener, Simon Tetlow, in the build up to the show. In early spring, fencing was erected around their plot on the showground site, to protect it from visitors’ feet and grazing deer. “Every time I checked over the fence, something new had appeared.” says Simon. “Periwinkles, buttercups, daisies and by late June, it had turned into a sea of clover. It was so simple yet beautiful and quickly affirmed one of the key rewilding messages; to re-evaluate uncelebrated plants and seek out hidden beauty, no matter how small.” Tune-in to Gardening with the RHS on www.rhs.org.uk/podcast from 22nd July and listen to Simon talk about the diversity and ecology of Tatton Park’s wider landscape.

Go native in the Parkland

Michael also chose feature plants specific to the Parkland site for his RHS garden design. Sedge, soft rush, spotted orchids, hawthorn, field maple and teasels all grow wild and free across Tatton Park’s 1000 acres. But like many wildlife havens, you may have to venture off the beaten track to spot them. Head away from the main drive, venture into quieter corners and you’ll find rare and internationally important habitats. Both meres are on the RAMSAR List, as wetland sites of international importance, and Dog Wood is a designated SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest).

Biodiversity is the buzz word

Darren Morris is a Ranger at Tatton Park and sees first-hand how the native species featured in the RHS garden support wildlife across the Parkland. “The numerous plant species found in the parkland also support a vast array of insect and invertebrate life” Darren goes on to explain that managing grassland effectively is crucial for supporting biodiversity. “We manage the grassland to provide habitats for as many native species as possible” says Darren. “Our grassland is managed to allow a variety of sward lengths, this in turn supports many native plant species such as harebell, tormentil and speedwell. Added to this, many fungi species also thrive here. The longer grass sward in some areas of the park provides habitat for field voles, which in turn, then attract birds such as barn owls and kestrels to the Park.” Tickets are still available for RHS Flower Show Tatton Park at www.rhs.org.uk

Spectacular The Croods 2 - A New Age Inspired Treehouse Unveiled At Idle Valley Nature Reserve


School girl’s winning design is brought to life in Retford for generations to enjoy
Eight-year-old Lottie Brown designed her dream treehouse as part of a competition to celebrate the release of the new epic adventure film in association with Co-op Insurance and Neighbourhood Watch.
Young people in Retford, Nottinghamshire, now have a brand-new community treehouse, situated in Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust’s Idle Valley Nature Reserve – all thanks to a schoolgirl from York and new film The Croods 2: A New Age.
Judges crowned Lottie as the overall winner because of her imaginative and inclusive design, which features a hotel for bugs, ‘kindness rocks,’ and interactive games for children to enjoy. The treehouse has now been brought to life in Retford for youngsters all over the region to enjoy for many years to come.
The Croods 2: A New Age has community at its core, telling the story of two families uniting and realising that life is better when people support each other, embrace their differences, and forge a future together. In their first meeting, the Croods are astounded, not only by the fact they are not the only family in existence, but by the incredible treehouse in which the Betterman’s live.
This month, Lottie saw her design come to life at the nature reserve, when she was invited to cut the ribbon and be the first person to play on the treehouse with her best friend, Millie.
On the day, Lottie was led down a red carpet and received a personal congratulatory message from the film’s director, Joel Crawford.
Lottie said: “I loved the first Croods movie, so I was really excited to get to draw my own treehouse. I’m even more excited now as my treehouse is actually real for other children to play on. It’s amazing! I told everyone at school and my teachers want to plan a trip to Idle Valley so that all my friends can play on it.”
The treehouse is located close to the visitor carpark, and further development work on the play area is planned in the coming months for visiting families to enjoy.
Charles Offord, Managing Director of Co-op Insurance said: “The quality of the designs submitted were simply incredible. Young people across the nation really got creative, and we’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who entered the competition.
Lottie’s impressive treehouse is there to be enjoyed by visitors to Idle Valley Nature Reserve and the local community for many years to come.  At the Co-op, community lies at the heart of everything we stand for, and it was a pleasure to be involved in this project alongside Neighbourhood Watch, the Wildlife Trust and of course The Croods!”
John Hayward-Cripps, CEO of Neighbourhood Watch said: “We are so impressed with Lottie’s well thought out treehouse, and we look forward to seeing it bring people together and strengthen community spirit.
As a charity, Neighbourhood Watch is all about being neighbourly and community-focused and we hope this initiative opens more opportunities to involve children in coming up with inclusive ways to unite communities.”
DreamWorks Animation’s The Croods 2: A New Age is in UK cinemas on 16th July 2021.

Council urges residents and businesses to remain cautious following relaxing of restrictions


Cheshire East Council is asking residents and businesses to remain cautious following the relaxing of Covid restrictions and the move to step 4 from Monday 19 July.

Cases of the highly transmissible Delta variant are continuing to rise right across Cheshire East (305 cases per 100,000 in the latest week 4 July to 10 July) and the borough remains in the Enhanced Response Area (ERA) designation.

Leader of Cheshire East Council, Councillor Sam Corcoran, said: “We have all waited for so long for restrictions to be eased, but now is definitely not the right time to become complacent and to let our guard down.

“Staff, volunteers, key workers and businesses across the borough have all worked tirelessly to help get us to this stage. But we owe it to ourselves and to others to be responsible and keep following the guidance.”

Councillor Craig Browne, deputy leader of Cheshire East Council, said: “After almost 18 months living under the shadow of this pandemic, the removal of formal restrictions is a welcome relief to many residents and businesses; nevertheless, we should continue to exercise caution, remain vigilant and act responsibly to minimise the spread of Covid in our communities.

“This is especially important for our 40,000 businesses in the borough which have a duty of care to protect their staff and customers; this is likely to involve them taking appropriate steps to mitigate the risk of further infections. Where this is the case, please do as you are requested out of respect for fellow customers and members of staff.

“We should be under no illusion that the coronavirus has gone away, but we do have to learn to live with it. Like every other pandemic in history, it will probably be with us for several years to come and we should all be mindful of that.”

Dr Matt Tyrer, director of public health at Cheshire East Council, said: “Along with public health colleagues and partners, I fear the current situation with Covid cases rising and an increase in related hospitalisations, is only going to get worse before it gets better.

“Therefore, getting vaccinated is the best thing you can do to keep yourself and others closest to you safe. if you haven’t taken up either your first or second jab yet, then please do so, as you need both doses for maximum protection.

“We are still advising to continue wearing a mask to protect others especially in crowded spaces or on public transport, and if you feel you should wear one in other settings or are in a situation where you think you should, then do wear it”.
