Lower Peover WI – October 2018

October 15th, 2018 | Posted by Sarah Morgan in News | WI News - (Comments Off on Lower Peover WI – October 2018)

Wednesday 3rd October 2018

This month’s meeting was our produce show – we were all asked to bring a variety of produce/craft items for judging.  The categories included – plain biscuits, a dried flower card, a flower arrangement, miniature art work, a water photograph, and a favourite hat with a note to say why.  All the members took part in the judging for the favourite item in each category and at the end of the evening we discovered who had submitted them and won the cup for each category.

Three of our members reported back following their attendance at ‘A Cheshire Walking Weekend’ in Coniston. The weekend in late September had been organised by Cheshire Federation for WI and there were guided walks on all days to suit different levels of walking skills. In the evening, after dinner there were games, entertainment from the members, skittles and quizzes. They all had a fantastic time with good fun and friendship, lots of chatting but with time for quiet reflection, or to settle down with a book. They were blessed with fantastic weather most of the time and the Lake District showed off her autumnal beauty. Thank you to the organisers of the weekend and the guides. A good time was had by all.

Our next meeting will be on Wednesday November 7th  at 7.30pm in Lower Peover School and will consist of the AGM followed by Speaker Kath Reynolds on; ‘Tis the Season to be Jolly’.We would love to welcome anyone who may be interested to come and join us.

Two More Dates For Consultation On Rural Crime Strategy Announced

Cheshire’s police and crime commissioner, David Keane, is to hold two more public events to give local residents the opportunity to have their say on the county’s new rural crime strategy.

Following on from the events in Macclesfield and Warrington this week, two more events will be held in Nantwich and Tattenhall over the next couple of weeks.

The events provide the opportunity for local residents to talk to their local policing team about issues in their area and to meet with the commissioner and the constabulary’s rural crime lead, chief inspector Simon Meegan, to give them feedback on the draft rural crime strategy prior to its publication.

The strategy has been developed in response to the local rural crime survey conducted in Cheshire over the summer and the recent national rural crime survey.

It outlines the priorities for rural officers and sets out the ways police in Cheshire will tackle rural and wildlife crime from now until 2021.

David said: “This strategy has been heavily influenced by the views of local residents who took their time to give us feedback as part of the rural crime survey. We have listened to what they told us but we want to ensure the strategy takes into account their priorities.

“The survey told us that more than two thirds of residents who live in Cheshire’s rural communities think police are doing a good job keeping their communities safe, but there is still more we can do to protect our more remote communities.

“Rural communities have their own unique crime related issues which can have a significant impact on residents or farming and businesses. It’s imperative for police to be specially equipped and trained to tackle these issues.

“As part of the plan, I’ve set five priorities for police in Cheshire to deliver over the next four years to ensure we tackle rural crime head on.”

Selecta DNA Property Marking Kits

September 28th, 2018 | Posted by Sarah Morgan in Events | News - (Comments Off on Selecta DNA Property Marking Kits)

Lower Peover Parish Council has purchased SelectaDNA property marking kits for every resident to protect their valuables from burglary. The kits are an effective way to reduce crime when used in conjunction with local signage that is now installed in the village.

These kits are specific to each household, so they can make property identifiable to the police if it is stolen.  The use of Selecta DNA in whole communities has shown that the area is less likely to be targeted for theft than an area that has not been covered, reducing incidences of burglary by up to 83% in some areas.

The next session for issuing the kits is taking place on Tuesday 16th October at 6pm at Lower Peover Primary School.

The kits will be available to collect following a short presentation by the Cheshire Police.

Sarah Morgan, the new clerk to Lower Peover Council, says ”The Council would like every resident to take up this offer and if you are not able to attend, please let the Parish Council know via phone or email and we will arrange a suitable time for you to be issued with your kit”

Lower Peover Parish can be contacted by phone on 07958055158 or by email at lowerpeoverpc@tiscali.co.uk

For further details on how the kits work, see the website at  www.selectadna.co.uk

Lower Peover WI – September 2018

September 23rd, 2018 | Posted by Sarah Morgan in Events | News | WI News - (Comments Off on Lower Peover WI – September 2018)

Wednesday 5th September 2018

This month’s talk ‘What is Art and who decides what is good art?’ was given by Philip Powell from Philips Art Gallery Altrincham.   Philip illustrated his talk with a varied collection of paintings from his own art dealing business.  There was a great deal of discussion as to whether good art was that which gave pleasure to the viewer or whether it was decided by the art experts who valued it.  An interesting exercise was trying to work out the most expensive of the paintings he had brought to show us.

Arrangements for the several outings planned for the Autumn, including a visit and talk at Arighi Bianchi, the Terracotta Warriors, Curzons cinema for the ballet and of course the Christmas meal were also discussed.

Our next meeting will be on Wednesday October 3rd  at 7.30pm in Lower Peover School, it is a produce show and members are invite to submit items of cookery, craft, flower arrangements, photographs and this year your favourite hat. We would love to welcome anyone who may be interested to come and join us.
