Warning Issued Following Hoax Calls from Scammers Claiming To Be Police Officers

July 23rd, 2020 | Posted by Sarah Morgan in Uncategorized - (Comments Off on Warning Issued Following Hoax Calls from Scammers Claiming To Be Police Officers)
Detectives have been made aware of a spate of hoax calls from scammers claiming to be police officers from Cheshire Constabulary acting on behalf of HMRC.

There have been several reports over the last two months whereby people have been receiving calls from someone purporting to be a police officer or from Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC).

The first part of the call is automated and asks the victim to press 1 in order to be connected to HMRC.
A recorded message then then informs the victim that they have an unpaid tax bill and that there is a warrant out for their arrest unless they pay the balance immediately.

The fraudsters then ask the victims to make a bank transfer to pay off their supposed outstanding tax bill.
Scammers can also make calls appear as though they come from legitimate numbers and in one recent case the numbers traced back to a Cheshire based police station and HMRC.
Detective Sergeant Chris Jacques of the Economic Crime Unit said: “It is important to remember that police officers and HRMC will never call you and ask you to settle the balance of a tax bill over the phone.
“Telephone numbers can easily be spoofed and you should never trust the number you see on your telephone display.
“If you receive a suspicious call, do not give any information over the phone and end the call immediately.
“I would advise anyone who believes that they may have been a victim to this scam to please report it to us on 101 or via”

Police and Crime Commissioner David Keane said: “I am deeply concerned to hear about this recent spate of fraudsters claiming to be police officers.

“Fraud has a significant emotional and financial impact on victims so, as the Police and Crime Commissioner, I am committed to supporting those affected and to ensuring that action is taken.

“I am urging all residents to remain vigilant and tell their family, friends and neighbours to be wary of these scams in order to protect against fraud in Cheshire.”

Anyone who believes they have been contacted fraudulently or have been a victim of fraud should call Cheshire Police on 101 and Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.

St Oswald’s Church re-opening

June 22nd, 2020 | Posted by Sarah Morgan in Uncategorized - (Comments Off on St Oswald’s Church re-opening)

After a detailed risk assessment, the PCC have agreed that St Oswald’s will be open for private prayer twice a week from Monday 22nd June. Please note, this is for private prayer ONLY – there are no services planned at the moment.

On Mondays the church will be open from 10am to 12noon and will open again on Thursdays from 12noon to 2pm. There will be guidance in place to ensure social distancing and hygiene (hand sanitiser will be available).

We hope this sees a beginning of a return to normality although we all still have to be cautious.

Best wishes

In addition, we are hoping that the new vicar, Father Murray Aldridge-Collins, will be officially installed as vicar on Thursday. 16th July. Unfortunately, it will be via a Zoom link but, nevertheless, progress is being made!

Garden waste collections

June 1st, 2020 | Posted by Sarah Morgan in News - (Comments Off on Garden waste collections)

28 May 2020


Garden Waste collections were suspended in March at the start of the coronavirus pandemic lockdown as staff sickness levels in the workforce increased, and this decision ensured the domestic waste and recycling service could continue to operate as normal

Staff sickness levels have fallen in recent weeks and more staff are now available to collect residents’ garden waste in addition to providing the usual service.

What is happening

Collections will return to the previously advertised schedule and we will continue to monitor the national Covid risk rating, infection rate, and the continued availability of staff in the weeks to come to ensure we can continue to run all services while ensuring staff safety.

Residents will be asked not to overfill their bins or to leave additional garden waste next to their bin, as crews will not be able to collect any side waste and they will be asked to put their green bin out by 7am on their normal scheduled collection day.

We will only be able to empty garden waste containers once on the scheduled collection day.  Excess garden waste can be composted, taken to the nearest recycling centre or placed into the garden waste container ready for the next scheduled collection.

Household waste and recycling collections will continue as normal.

Re-introduction of garden waste collections

The garden waste collection will re-commence from 4 June 2020. Garden waste will be collected:

  • On the residents normal scheduled collection day.
  • Waste must be contained within the correct garden container provided.
  • Additional garden waste not placed in the container will not be collected. ( see FAQs)
  • Bins must be out by 7am on scheduled collection days.
  • Residents must leave the containers out if not collected as collections times may vary.
  • If the container is not emptied on the scheduled day – residents must report a missed collection.
  • The container  will not be emptied if it is too heavy ( see FAQs)
