Wilmslow West and Chorley police newsletter
July to August 2019

James Morris
Police Community Support Officer
Wilmslow West and Chorley ward

As has been widely circulated in local and national news (and many of you will have noticed), south Manchester and north Cheshire – including Wilmslow – have suffered the brunt of heavy rainfall over the past week. Consequently, officers have spent a great deal of time managing and supporting many weather-related incidents, including floods, fallen trees and damaged roads. Affected areas included the A34 Melrose Way (which spent several days affected by flooding) and Chapel Lane (which remains closed at the junctions with Hawthorn Street and Fulshaw Avenue due to a sink hole).
During the intermittent spells of fine weather anti-social behaviour patrols have been carried out at locations up and down the ward area. These include regular areas that are popular with the community (such as Carrs Park and Carnival Fields), but also include other areas as part of an anti-social behaviour patrol plan. This plan is constantly reviewed to ensure that current areas of peak demand receive specific attention to monitor and manage issues.
Also, a great thank you to those who attended the Joint Emergency Services Day at Wilmslow fire station on 27th July. The event featured stalls and vehicles from various services including police, fire and ambulance as well as demonstrations from the fire service of their impressive cutting gear. Despite the predictably atrocious weather, spirits were not dampened and the day was judged to be a success. On the 24th August (and hoping we don’t jinx the weather once more!), emergency services will be at the rescheduled Cinema on the Carrs event at Carrs Park with vehicles and equipment for you try out. You can read more about the event here: http://www.wilmslow.co.uk/events/detail/8314/cinema-on-the-carrs

Typically during the summer period demand on the police service becomes higher than usual. There are various options you can use to get advice and support from police and other agencies:
  • 999 is a telephone line used for emergencies only. Requesting police using 999 should only be when there is a risk to life or there is a crime in progress.
  • Incidents that do not require an emergency police response can be reported by telephoning 101. These could include anti-social behaviour or crimes that have already occurred.
  • An alternative to reporting crimes via 101 is to visit a police station during opening hours. Wilmslow police station front desk is open Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm; Macclesfield police station helpdesk is open Monday to Saturday, 8am to 8pm and Sunday 8am to 6pm. Additionally, both police stations have a public telephone to connect to 101 free of charge, 24/7.
  • With Wilmslow being very close to the Manchester border, make sure that the incident you are reporting relates to Cheshire Police. Incidents relating to Altrincham, Hazel Grove and Manchester Airport (for examples) are policed by Greater Manchester Police.
  • There are many issues that can be reported to the local authority for assistance. These include matters relating to anti-social behaviour, noise nuisance, fly-tipping and dog fouling. Information can be found by visiting the Cheshire East Council website cheshireeast.gov.uk
  • Services such as the Citizens Advice Bureau can offer information on a number of issues, including neighbour issues and financial matters. There are various CAB drop-in sessions available across the area, including Mondays at Wilmslow United Reformed Church from 9:30am to 12:30pm. More information is available at https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/
  • For issues relating to medical conditions, advice can be found immediately at https://www.nhs.uk/. Alternatively, the non-urgent 111 helpline can be called 24/7 for health advice.
