Wilmslow West and Chorley police newsletter
February 2021

James Morris
Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) 22573

Patrols around busy parts of the area and anti-social behaviour hotspots have continued this month, covering areas including Carrs Park, Wilmslow town centre, South Oak Lane park, Temp Park, Carnival Fields, Jim Evison fields, Lindow Common and Spring Street car park. Partnership working between police, local authority and other parties of interest is continuing to reduce anti-social behaviour at the car park.

A new way for residents to raise their priorities with the police has been launched in the Macclesfield LPU area, covering Wilmslow West and Chorley. The Residents’ Watch initiative invites residents to take a survey to share their policing concerns.

A 21-year-old male from Manchester has been jailed for 3 years and 9 months after being convicted for burglaries in Cheshire, including in Wilmslow. At 11:30pm on 27th December 2020, David Ashton, from Wythenshawe, was pursued by police on Altrincham Road, Wilmslow after he had committed a burglary in Warrington. While fleeing from officers, he broke into a house on Racecourse, Wilmslow. Ashton was stopped by officers in Greater Manchester 10 days later and was arrested for the offences he had committed. He also received a two-year driving ban (to begin once he is released from prison) and a £190 victim surcharge.

Help to protect your vehicle from thieves:
- Remove all valuables. Hide securely in the vehicle any valuables that cannot be removed.
- Keep as many items as possible out of sight – for example, empty laptop bags.
- Always lock all doors and windows. When using a key fob, double-check that it has worked.
- Keep gates locked. If you do not have a gate, place your wheelie pins in front of your vehicle.
- Consider the use of a steering wheel lock.
- For keyless entry vehicles, store the keys in a locked, signal-proof box in a secure location in the house.
- Consider installing collapsible bollards.
- Keep an eye on your neighbours and report suspicious activity (such as vehicles and people) to police, noting as much information as possible (e.g. registration numbers, vehicle makes, clothing colours, etc): www.cheshire.police.uk
- Join or consider setting up a messaging group for your street, such as WhatsApp or Facebook.
