GOOD NEWS

Runcorn Police have teamed up with Sharks Community Trust to encourage young people to interact with local police through a rugby project in Runcorn.

The Cheshire Police, in partnership with Sharks Community Trust, have developed ‘Rugby in the Park’ which will use rugby to increase the participation for those not normally exposed to the sport. The aim is to encourage young people to interact with their local police and to join their local rugby club.

The project will be every Monday evening from the 18th Novemeber 4-7pm.
They will be held at Astmoor Primary School in Castlefileds due to Phoenix Park not being suitable playing Fields.

Christmas shopping has started so places are getting much busier please be careful when out and about and be sure to secure all property and vehicles.

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

Bonfire night – list of bonfires in Cheshire


It’s much safer to attend an organised community bonfire – so please attend an organised event this Bonfire Night.

Most injuries throughout the bonfire period occur as a result of people building their own bonfires, and setting off their own fireworks.

Cheshire Burn Awareness Week


We joined forces with organisations from across the country to urge people to stay safe as part of Cheshire Burn Awareness Week (14th-18th October). This week incorporated National Burn Awareness Day, which took place on 16th October.

During Cheshire Burn Awareness Week our staff were out raising awareness of the main causes of burns and scalds and showing people that the majority of accidents are avoidable.

Burns can cause physical and emotional scars to both young and elderly victims and a potential hazard such as a boiling kettle or a saucepan full of hot fat can also cause lasting damage to a person.

Are you ready for winter?

Most incidents in the home can be prevented by using common sense and taking precautions.  Winter, particularly, can be a dangerous time with the higher than usual use of candles, electrical appliances and more hazardous roads.

Candle fire safety


With the days growing darker and winter setting in, a few candles scattered round the room can lend a warm glow to an evening. But with candle fires resulting in around 350 casualties each year, we would like you to take extra care with candles this winter – nearly 40% of all fires started by candles result in a death or injury.

Find out more – Candle fire safety

Get your chimney ready for the winter

With the colder, winter months looming, people will begin to start using open fires and their chimneys again.  In order to keep you and your family safe from fire, you need to take necessary steps such as ensuring your chimney is swept regularly, depending upon what fuel you burn and we would urge all householders to have a working smoke alarm in their home.

Find out more – Get your chimney ready for the winter

Is your car ready for winter?


Of all the seasons, winter requires the most care and preparation if you’re to stay safe.  Please be prepared in case the bad weather strikes in your area of Cheshire.

In snow or icy conditions, it will take longer to stop – always drive at a speed appropriate for the conditions.

In winter it’s even more important to check your vehicle is well maintained and serviced.

Find out more – Is your car ready for winter?


Change your clocks and check your smoke alarms


Cheshire residents are being urged to check their smoke alarms as they prepare to turn the clocks back.

The clocks go back at 2.00am on Sunday 27 October and, as summer time officially ends, we’re asking people to prepare for the autumn and winter by checking their smoke alarms.

Official Update announcement on the launch date for Sandymoor Playing Field, Wharford Lane.

Official Update announcement on the launch date for

Sandymoor Playing Field, Wharford Lane.

We would firstly like to thank you all for your patience and understanding regarding the delays in the opening of this fantastic Sports Facility.

We are another step closer to opening, after the first Playing Field Management Committee Meeting was held on the 23rd September 2019.

The opening has taken longer than anticipated due to several legal issues encountered as we progressed, most of which could not have been predicted before we started this process. 

This communication is to advise you of the outstanding issues and our ongoing commitment to get this facility up and working as soon as possible. The really tricky ones have been addressed already but there are some remaining issues. There are 3 outstanding issues to be addressed and then we will be in a position to open.

These are

  • • Sandymoor School to formally take over the free hold of the land the school sits on. This is linked to the Secretary of State for Education who has indicated they will sign once the School has joined the multi academy Trust. We have mitigation for this action in the form of a letter of intent which has been lodged to mitigate the planning conditions.
  • • The Shared Use Agreement to be signed on Behalf of Sandymoor School – until the free hold of the land between the changing facilities / entrance to the school is owned by the school they cannot enter into the agreement – we have permission from Homes England to mitigate this.
  • • HBC – waiting for notification by HBC Planning team to discharge the planning conditions. All paperwork requested has been forwarded and we await their response.

We are still not in a position to give an opening date but hope to be in a position to do so really soon, again thank you for your patience. We must stress that all parties involved have worked well together and have been accommodating to the situation we find ourselves in.

We are looking for an individual to sit on the Playing field Committee, if you are interested in this, please email me on ku.vo1574046306g.lic1574046306nuoch1574046306sirap1574046306roomy1574046306dnas@1574046306krelc1574046306 

Warm regards Sandymoor Parish Council and Sandymoor School.

Final Recommendations published for Halton

Final Recommendations published for Halton

Today we published our final recommendations for future electoral arrangements for Halton Borough Council.

We are proposing that Halton Borough Council should have 54 councillors.

Those councillors should represent 18 three-councillor wards across the borough.

We are also proposing that the boundaries of all wards should change.

We have now completed our electoral review of Halton Borough Council.

We are extremely grateful to the people of Halton who took the time and effort to send us their views.

We considered every piece of evidence we received before finalising our recommendations.

The changes we have proposed must now be approved by Parliament.

A draft Order – the legal document which brings into force our recommendations – will now be laid before Parliament.

The draft Order will provide for new electoral arrangements for Halton Borough Council to be implemented at the local elections in 2020.

Parking Issues

There has been a lot of Parking issues this month in various locations across the area, I have been dealing with these as I have come across them and I have been working with Morris homes to put temporary measures in place before double yellow lines are introduced.
Please remember that Double yellow lines means no waiting on either sides of them so don’t park on the pavement next to them.
The same applies to a solid white line if you park and make a vehicle cross the solid with line it is an endorsable offence which can leave you with 3 points and a fine if you receive a ticket.

PPX

Don’t forget PPX is on Friday 2nd August at Phoenix Park in Runcorn it is going to be a great day to come along to and engage with local people and companies in the area, we will have local youth groups, climbing walls and much more to see.

Inspiration

Inspiration

Friend —

Today marks the start of Neighbourhood Watch Week 2019 where we’ll be celebrating the amazing work our volunteers do in their communities. We’ll be looking at areas where you expect Neighbourhood Watch to operate in and around (burglary) as well as some more unexpected ones (knife violence and social isolation).

Our message this year is that when it comes to Neighbourhood Watch, there is #MoreThanYouExpect.

To kick start the week we have today launched Neighbourhood Watch Inspiration, a collection of the most innovative work being undertaken by our volunteers across England and Wales.

The database contains examples of how Neighbourhood Watch groups are changing their communities for the better. In each case, volunteers explain how they developed their project, the impact it had on their community and how they overcame any challenges.

Neighbourhood Watch Inspiration allows users to contact the author of each example with the hope of generating fruitful conversations between members.

Get involved!

Stay connected with Neighbourhood Watch on Facebook and Twitter where all this week we’ll be showcasing the full range of activities our volunteers undertake to improve their neighbourhoods using the hashtag: #MoreThanYouExpect.

We’re encouraging members to tell their stories on social media. How has Neighbourhood Watch helped your community? Why should people start their own schemes? Be sure to use our hashtag when you post!

If there’s just one thing you do today, please share our Facebook and Twitterpost’s with your friends, families and neighbours.

All the best.

HMRC Alert

HMRC Alert

What you need to know

  • Action Fraud has experienced an increase in the reporting of malicious calls and voicemails, to members of the public purporting to be from Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (HMRC).
  • Fraudsters are spoofing genuine HMRC telephone numbers to deceive their victims over the phone. The fraudsters state that as a result of the victim’s non-payment of tax or other duty, the victim is liable for prosecution or other legal proceedings in order to settle the balance. The fraudsters suggest victims can avoid this, by arranging payment to be made immediately by methods such as bank transfer or by purchasing iTunes gift cards.
  • If the victim is hesitant or refuses to comply, the suspect makes a threat such as immediate arrest, sending bailiffs to the victim’s address or, in some cases, deportation.
  • Often, the period for which the tax is allegedly due is distant enough to guarantee the victim will have little, if any, paperwork or ability to verify the claims. Once the money is paid the suspects sever all contact with the victim.
  • In genuine cases, HMRC will initially make direct contact with you via post/letter and potentially follow up that letter with a phone call at a later date.
  • If HMRC contact you via telephone they will quote the reference number on the initial letter you should have received. HMRC will not discuss something you are not already aware of, like a tax investigation, and will NOT demand immediate payment.

It is vital that the public exercise caution when receiving messages or telephone calls of this nature.

What you need to do

  • Always question unsolicited requests for your personal or financial information. Just because someone knows your basic details (such as your name and contact details), it doesn’t mean they are genuine. Instead, contact the company directly using trusted methods such as a known email address or phone number.
  • Legitimate organisations wouldn’t ask you to pay taxes, bills or fees using an iTunes gift card, or any other type of voucher. If you’re contacted by anyone that asks you to do this, you’re likely the target of a scam
  • Don’t be rushed or pressured into making a decision. Under no circumstances would a genuine bank or some other trusted organisation force you to make a financial transaction on the spot.
  • Report Phishing attempts. If you receive a call, text or email of this nature and have not lost money, you can report this as phishing to Action Fraud
