Wilmslow West and Chorley police newsletter
October to November 2019

Wilmslow West and Chorley ward

There are no prizes for guessing what the policing priority in the area will be for the next few days… With the Halloween period now getting into full swing the force operates its yearly “Operation Treacle”, which focuses on issues specific to Halloween (such as youth anti-social behaviour). Consequently, I’ll be working into the night over the weekend on high visibility patrol across the whole ward (including at the bonfire display at Carnival Fields on 2nd November) and I have been visiting local schools to discuss with children advice on how to be safe and sensible during Halloween and Bonfire Night.
Also, whether trick or treaters are welcome or not at your home, there are posters that you can print off from our website to either allow or discourage people from knocking at your door. You can find the posters here: https://www.cheshire.police.uk/news-and-appeals/news/be-a-good-egg-and-stay-out-of-trouble-this-hallowe-en/
On 22nd October I was privileged to be invited to Wilmslow United Reformed Church to meet the High Sheriff of Cheshire, Mark Mitchell, and learn about his ideas on law and order. I was also asked by a member of the community to join him and his guide dog on a walking tour with Esther McVey MP on 25th October. Despite it being possibly the wettest day ever recorded, it was important to raise awareness of the issues that pavement obstructions of any description can cause to people who may be visual impaired. On this occasion there were no vehicles obstructing the pavements of the route, which hopefully shows the positive impact hard work from police, the local authority and community organisations is having on gradually improving the parking situation across the town.
On 9th November, local officers will be holding an engagement event on Grove Street in Wilmslow from 11am to 3pm. This will be a great opportunity for anyone who wants to meet and discuss any policing issues with neighbourhood officers. Additionally, there will be plenty of crime prevention material to collect (including bicycle marking to prevent theft) and a police vehicle and uniform for children to try out. I also have the honour of attending the Wilmslow remembrance parade on Sunday 10th and I will be on patrol in the town centre during the Christmas lights switch-on on the 16th.
Following on from the Halloween theme, please find a list of tips for managing any anti-social behaviour you may encounter below:
  • Stick up signs discouraging people from attending at your address if you do not want people knocking at your door and shut and lock your gate if this is the case. Additionally, you may wish to close your curtains or blinds.
  • If you are happy for people to attend, consider fitting a bell to your gate so that you know when someone is approaching.
  • Do not feel pressured to answer the door if you do not want to: it is your home and you are in control.
  • Ensure lights around your property are functioning and consider using a sensor so that the lights operate when someone approaches.
  • Take down Halloween decorations once you have finished for the night.
  • Put your wheelie bin away once it has been emptied to prevent it being a target for deliberate fires.
  • Report any unattended or potentially dangerous fires to the fire service.
  • Only attend official bonfires, such as the one on Carnival Fields. Unofficial bonfires do not have the same safety measures and can be significantly more dangerous.
  • Call police in a non-emergency on 101 or in an emergency on 999.
