During the bank holiday period both the Winsford Football Club ,Barton Stadium and the Winsford Cricket Club at Knights Grange, Winsford where broken into probably to steal alcohol from the bar areas. This has a great impact on the club to repair the cost to the premises and affects the club financially.

Drugs Search Warrants
On Wednesday 4th May 2016, we conducted a drugs warrant on an address on Well Lane, Weaverham. Recovered was a significant cannabis production. The occupant was not present but we are looking for a 29 year old male to assist with our investigation.
On the afternoon of Thursday 5th May 2016, we conducted a drugs warrant at an address in Crocus Street, Barnton and recovered significant cannabis cultivation. The occupants was not present at the address and we are continuing with our enquires to trace those responsible for the grow.
Overnight on 26/10/15, two house burglaries where committed in Reed Lane, Antrobus. As a result of Police enquires a 23 year old male from the Newton Le Willows area was arrested some months ago for these offences along with other offences committed around the Cheshire area including robbery. The offender Dylan Hyams has recently been sentenced to 12 years, 2months and 25 days for these offences. This is a lengthy sentence for a travelling criminal, not afraid to use violence to commit offences and this sentence will keep our streets safer whilst he serves his sentence.

Raising Money for The Joshua Tree
On the 15th May 2016, I will be cycling from Cheshire to Bournemouth a total of 250 miles in two days. The ride is to raise funds for a worthy cause the Joshua Tree. (Registered charity number 1114000)
We all know family and friends who have children who have either suffered or are suffering from childhood cancer and the devastation and sadness this brings. The Joshua tree does a fantastic job in supporting these families. The small amount of pain I will go through to do this event is insignificant to the pain both a child and the families go through when they are diagnosed with cancer.
The Joshua Tree charity supports families affected by childhood cancer across Cheshire. They offer practical, therapeutic, educational and emotional support. The support services cost around £30 per family support session. Every penny donated ensures they are there for families when they need support. Please dig deep and support me to raise at least £500 for this charity. You can donate by going onto my JustGiving Page Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – saving time and cutting costs for the charity. Visit the page on the link http://www.justgiving.com/Dave-Snasdell
