June was undeniably a varied month – in terms of policing and the weather. On Sunday 9th June I was honoured to attend a special service at Wilmslow’s United Reformed Church to celebrate its 175th anniversary and equally privileged to speak on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary. The church is an absolutely integral part of the community and I’m sure that the many great services it provides will be gratefully received for years to come.
I also spoke to several of the ward’s parish, town and borough councillors throughout June, presenting numerous opportunities to discuss local concerns and to work together to ensure that the area remains a good place to live. It was interesting to learn of the initiatives to support the shopping area on Chapel Lane, led by the “Love The Lane” campaign. Clearly, a joint community effort has already created fantastic results along the road and will undoubtedly have an even greater positive impact as time goes by. The group can be found on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/829168253834753/
Finally, - and can I get a very small drum roll here, please – the time has come to announce that this year’s Joint Emergency Services Open Day will be taking place at Wilmslow Community Fire Station on Saturday 27th July from 10am to 3pm. The event will give an exclusive opportunity to visit stalls, watch demonstrations and, of course, amaze yourself at all of the fire engines – second only to the police, obviously! The day is free to enter but parking is not provided, so it is advisable to walk if you can. Further information can be found at the fire station.

This month’s crime prevention tips are based on how to keep your house secure in the summer:
  • The tried and tested methods are still the best ones: keep doors and windows closed as often as possible (especially when you’re out) and keep them locked. This includes even the smallest of windows in your home and if you’re enjoying the sun in the back garden – are you aware of what’s going on at the front of your house?
  • If you’re away on holiday, consider leaving a key with a trusted family member or friend. This will allow them to effectively keep an eye on your house and make it looked lived in – by, for example, picking up post.
  • It may be an inconvenience to open a garage door, but your car is far safer locked away in a garage. Similarly, closed and locked gates on the entrances to your house make it harder for potential criminals to gain access.
  • Consider purchasing a video recording doorbell, which may allow you greater control over people visiting your property.
  • Good weather DIY and gardening always seems like a magical idea at the time, but once you’ve finished ensure that everything is packed away securely. This reduces the likelihood of equipment being stolen or used as a tool to break into your house.
  • When you’re out and about, switch your burglar alarm on. Also, at night time, use external lighting around your property – no criminal likes having their activities on show.
  • Remove valuable items from display and lock them away safely. This includes jewellery, money and car keys.
  • More advice can be found at: www.cheshire.police.uk/advice-and-support/home-safety-and-security or by visiting Wilmslow Police Station and picking up a leaflet.
