A 24 year old local male has been arrested for these offences on Wednesday 11th May 2016 along with another burglary at the stadium which occurred on 21st April 2016. The male has been charged with the offence that occurred on 21st April and remanded in custody and bailed for the other offences whilst we wait for forensic results.
On the evening of Friday 13th May 2016 a disturbance occurred on Crown Street, Northwich in which Police were called to a number of males fighting. As a result of the incident 4 men have been arrested for affray. We are working with the licensing trade in particular licensed premises in the town centre to try and reduce the number of incidents which are drink and drug related and will continue to do this to make the streets and pubs a safe place to go.

One warrant was conducted in Bowden Drive, Rudheath and a quantity of cannabis recovered along with articles for the concern in the supply of class “A” drugs.

Northwich Town Centre Road Works Update
Monday 16 May 2016 to Sunday 22 May General update Works continue around the roundabout as for the previous few weeks.
Main traffic disruptions: To continue: · Roundabout - Traffic management will continue as in previous weeks with all lanes at the roundabout narrowed down to single lane approaches/exits to allow safe working. · Leicester Street · Hadfield Street Car Park will remain closed but Station Road West car park is open for alternative use.
Specific work areas: Generally, as previous couple of weeks: · Station Road west of A559 around into Leicester Street – work will continue on the verge area to carry out proposed new carriageway widening, drainage and utilities diversion works. Also widening of both sides of Leicester Street working in the verge areas. Leicester Street will remain open to two-way traffic but lanes narrowed down. · Hadfield Street Car Park area - works continuing on construction of the new carriageway layout. · Old Station Road area – Works at the turning head end of the stopped up area shall continue. Some of the construction works starting within the road area itself but access to businesses shall be maintained however parking within the road may be restricted at times.
NOTE – New Warrington Road – road closure:
From Monday 23 May until and Friday 3 June 2016 – one way road closure of New Warrington Road. The road will be closed with no exit off the roundabout up to the bridge over Wade Brook, however, two way traffic will remain up to this point from Ollershaw Lane. Please note that access from Ollershaw Lane direction up to the roundabout will remain still in use unaffected.
From Saturday 4 June until and Sunday 12 June 2016 – full road closure of New Warrington Road with no through route. The duration of this full closure has been extended from original required for this scheme so as to include not only carriageway resurfacing works but also bridge works (replacing the leaking bridge joints). The bridge works were initially intended to be carried out on a full road closure next year, however, combining this with our scheme will reduce any further impact on the area in the near future. New Warrington Road diversion route will be from the A559 roundabout via A559 Chester Road east, upto Lostock Gralam signals, A559 Hall Lane, Marston Lane and back into Ollershaw Lane. Unfortunately we cannot sign Wincham Lane as the diversion route due to the nature of the route and potential traffic using it. When the full closure is in place the diversion will also be in reverse.
Police Support Local Boxing Club
Cheshire Police Federation has recently supported Boxing Fit Academy which trains outs of Lostock Community Centre, Works Lane just off Manchester Road, Lostock. The club which trains all age groups and adults were in need of replacing the boxing ring canvas. Local officer PC Emily Faint advised the club to apply for funding application to the Cheshire Police Federation which was successful. The £365 will be a great benefit for the club.
Community Support for local charity
VOLUNTEERS are urgently needed in Northwich to help fight the biggest cause of death in the world. The British Heart Foundation (BHF) runs more than 730 charity shops throughout England, Wales and Scotland, and are mainly staffed by around 20,000 volunteers. The charity is always on the lookout for people to dedicate their time, and have launched a fresh drive for new volunteers at their Northwich branch in High Street. Manjeet Bansal, assistant manager of The British Heart Foundation, said: “There are lots of benefits to volunteering, such as developing your skills, gaining qualifications and supporting a cause you care about. “As a customer service volunteer you will gain experience in dealing with the public. You may be eligible to work towards an NVQ (National Vocational Qualification) in customer service and retail. “We’re also an approved activity provider for the Duke of Edinburgh award, which is valued by colleges, universities and future employers.” Manjeet said all are welcome to volunteer, with the BHF able to fit the role around the individual. She said the store is particularly looking for till operators, customer service and volunteer drivers. “Whatever your reason for joining, you can expect to have lots of fun and meet some great people,” Manjeet said. The British Heart Foundation is the largest independent funder of cardiovascular research in the UK. Cardiovascular diseases – a class of diseases that involve the heart or blood vessels –are the leading cause of death globally, according the World Health Organization. Deaths from CVD are more common and have been increasing in much of the developing world, though rates have declined in most of the developed world since the 1970s. The BHF retail division makes roughly £31 million every year, accounting for 23 per cent of the overall income of BHF. These vital funds are then invested into vital life-saving research. Manjeet said: “The money we raise in our shops, through fundraising and at our events is used to fund research to save more lives.” For more information, pop into the Northwich store in 51 High Street.
