Firstly, I appreciate it has been a long time since you received an alert update from myself. Apologies about this but it has been a sustained period of high demand.

You may have seen on social media and in the local news, reports of a missing male called Michael Price born 05-04-77 Unfortunately, this male is still missing and the search continues, it goes without saying that anyone with any information should contact the police via 101 and quote incident number 303 of 16-04-17.

In relation to more local news, speed enforcement continues in varying areas dotted around Weaverham, Sandiway and Cuddington. PC 3111 Murgatroyd has been supported by a number of our PCSO’s who you may have seen with the ‘speed gun’ at the ready. In the last couple of months there has been in range of approximately 100 fines issued. This level of enforcement will continue and we will widen the area of the speed enforcement when more streets become eligible for the use of prosecutions.

Since April, I have had two reports of criminal damage being caused to the Brownies/Rainbows building which is situated by the swimming pool. This is a real shame for them as they are a charity run organisation with little funds to spend on repairs that have to be made through mindless acts of damage. I have increased the amount of time I spend in that area but would urge anyone who witnesses anything untoward in this area to report the matter via 101 or 999 if it’s an emergency.

Although you may not believe it, the summer months are upon us. This means an increase in day light hours with more people out and about. With recent events in the news in Manchester and London, I would urge everyone to look out for one another. If you feel something is suspicious or see something that is suspicious then report it. This is a time for communities to come together by putting their disputes and differences to one side and supporting each other.

I continue to receive reports of criminal activity and this intelligence is vital in allowing the police to take a proactive approach to those who blight our community. Please continue to pick up the phone or email any information you have, that you feel would benefit the police in targeting these offenders.

I hope the weather does improve fairly soon as we have some upcoming community events on, such as the Cuddington & Sandiway Fete which I hope you will all have chance to enjoy, as well as the Weaverham Rose Fete and parade.

Anyone with any information to support Cheshire Police, in any crime or incident please call Cheshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111. Keep up to date with policing issues in your local area by following @PoliceNorthwich on Twitter.
