Alert message sent 10/08/2017 08:55:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

Macclesfield Local Policing Unit- Congleton


This is to inform you that unfortunately a pushbike has been stolen from Mill Green, Congleton. This incident occurred overnight on 6th-7th August.

Please follow the crime prevention advice listed below:

  • Do not leave your bike in isolated places
  • Always lock your bike when leaving it, even if it's only for a few minutes
  • Secure your bike to proper stands or robust street furniture
  • Lock your bike through the frame, not the wheels
  • Secure or remove wheels
  • Remove smaller parts and accessories that can't be secured, especially lights, pumps and quick-release saddles
  • Consider getting your bike security marked so that police can check who it belongs to and return it, if it’s been stolen.
  • And remember, more than 50% of bike thefts occurs in owners' homes - so you may want to keep your bike locked up at all times.


We are holding a free bike marking event on Sunday 20th August at Astbury Mere from 2-4pm.
