Message from CWAC re Dealing with Waste

April 3rd, 2020 | Posted by Sarah Morgan in Uncategorized - (Comments Off on Message from CWAC re Dealing with Waste)

Tissues and Kitchen roll

Covid-19: Tissues and kitchen roll cannot be recycled and should not be put into your recycling boxes. This is especially important during this time to reduce the spread of infection. Recycling boxes containing tissues will not be emptied to protect our staff from the risk of infection.

If your box has not been emptied for this reason, please put the tissues in your black bin and put your recycling back out on your next collection day.

If you have additional recycling this can be put out for collection next to your box in a suitable, clearly labelled container or carrier bag. Please separate materials in the usual way. This container will be returned to you.

How to deal with your waste if you’re self-isolating

The Government has advised that anyone who is self-isolating with symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), including those with a diagnosis of the virus, should treat their household waste as follows:

·        Personal waste e.g. used tissues, and disposable cleaning cloths can be stored securely within disposable rubbish bags. These bags should be placed into another bag, tied securely and kept separate from other waste within your own room. This should be put aside for at least 72 hours before being put in your usual external household waste bin.

·        Other household waste can be disposed of as normal.

The advice also says that when cleaning you should use your usual household products like detergents and bleach as these will be very effective at getting rid of the virus on surfaces. Clean frequently touched surfaces.

For more information, read the Government’s stay at home guidance for people with confirmed or possible coronavirus (COVID-19) infection.

Coronavirus Scam Warning

March 25th, 2020 | Posted by Sarah Morgan in News - (Comments Off on Coronavirus Scam Warning)
Residents across Cheshire are being urged to be vigilant following an emerging national trend of fraudsters taking advantage of the current Coronavirus pandemic.

Nationally, there have been reports of people visiting homes posing as police officers and health officials in a bid to gain entry to homes of the elderly and vulnerable.

Some reports suggest scammers are even promising fake coronavirus tests or offering to deliver shopping and other essentials in exchange for money to assist those who are self-isolating.

Whilst there have been no specific reports within the county residents are urged to remain vigilant and be on their guard.

Police and crime commissioner David Keane said: “It is despicable that fraudsters are exploiting this public health emergency and targeting the most vulnerable people in our communities at a time when they are more vulnerable than ever.

“Police in Cheshire are continuing to work hard to keep us safe in these uncertain times and I would urge you to follow the key scam advice below to help you stay safe in your homes.”

Key advice
•Police officers will never approach you to take a Coronavirus test.
•If someone knocks at your door, always examine and check their identification. If you are unsure please call the organisation or company they are claiming to work for. If they are genuine they will not mind.
•You do not have to let them in and they must leave if you tell them to.
•Never let anyone in your house unless they are someone you know and trust.
•If someone is trying to rush you into doing something, handing over money or taking a test it is likely that they are involved in a scam.
•Never give money or your card and pin number to anyone.
•Be aware that scammers can be clever, they will have done their homework and will often know a lot of information about people they target. Often they are very organised.
•If you believe that you have been victim of fraud call us on 101 or report it to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.

PCSO Community Awareness Report

July 19th, 2019 | Posted by Sarah Morgan in News - (Comments Off on PCSO Community Awareness Report)

Please continue to phone the 101 number if you see or hear anything suspicious on 101.  We understand this can be rather frustrating at times for the waiting time during high volume times.

Over the past few months in the two wards we have had incidents in relation to dogs out of control and straying from either public footpaths or permitted access footpaths, Damage to footpath fences.  Furthermore we have had reports of livestock either being worried or killed by a small minority of irresponsible dog owners who are not keeping their dogs on leads. (Latest report this morning 08/05/19 at Henbury )

There has been an increase of Keyless cars and vans being stolen or entered  .

Our advice is:-

Switch your fob off at night

Store your fob out of sight and in a faraday bag

Update your vehicles software on a regular basis

Consider fitting a tracker

Consider fitting steering wheel lock

Do not leave any valuables in the vehicle or on show

Community Road watch new scheme to submit your dashcam to the Police to help keep roads safer

For more information then please go to the Cheshire Police website

Most areas are asking for more volunteers for their Community Speed Watch Schemes please volunteer for this there have been very positive results in reducing the speed of vehicles travelling through your villages and past your schools. 

Best Wishes

Chairman’s Report 2018-19

July 19th, 2019 | Posted by Sarah Morgan in News - (Comments Off on Chairman’s Report 2018-19)

Lower Peover continues to be a great place to live with a friendly local community.

This report seems very similar to last year: life moves slowly – however the years 2018-19 have seen a few changes arising in the village itself:

  • Building has started for the new homes to come to the village. Despite a planning battle with the council and then a council battle with national bodies, the houses are being built to the builders’ scheme rather then to be more in fitting with village housing stock. Unfortunately, in addition to this, there was great inconvenience and angst caused to those who live on or near Holly Tree Drive as 100s of wagons illegally used the Holly Tree Drive access to the site. Thankfully after some affirmative action from local residents and the Parish council, with support from the media, this situation has been resolved.
  • We won the Best Kept Village Competition for last year!! The hard work by nearly 20 litter-pickers last year will have helped as we took over 20 overflowing bags of rubbish off our lanes. The welcoming appearance of both the Crown and the Bells of Peover were a positive element as well as was the Village shop. As we look towards 2019’s Best Kept Village competition the efforts of those who supported litter picking during the recent rather wet event  -and those that contributed over that weekend – will hopefully count in our favour as judges come, unannounced, to judge us this summer. We hope to do a litter pick again in early September and involve as many as possible to keep Lower Peover looking as good as it can. Keep an eye on the parish noticeboard (outside the Country Store)
  • and the Lower Peover Facebook page for details of new events and make sure that we have your email address but writing to the village clerk.
  • We have welcomed a new member of the Parish Council this year: Alison Painter, who has had connections to the village for generations, is a great addition. Alison, tother with George Dutton  supported the PC contribution to the WW! Commemorative event held at the church.
  • Two other new additions made by the PC this year are the addition of posts around the Tree of Imagination – to try to reduce the impact of cars parking on the grass verge and churning it up and to try to reduce the chance of incident on that corner. The other addition being a new phonebox to our portfolio of Parish Phone Boxes [!]
  • The PC would like to thank the Rev Dr Jane Lloyd for her many years of service as the Vicar of Lower Peover and wish her well as she takes up her new post in Haslington.
  • In Parish Council business we have seen a continuation of several items from previous years:
  1. The dumping of rubble on the land behind Brookfield Cottage, Foxcovert lane has upset a large number of locals as the once easy, green walk over towards the A50 has become a muddy, difficult and unpleasant route. Councillors have worked hard alongside Cheshire West Council but without resolution.
  2.  The once near derelict bridge/footway leading from Foxcovert Lane bridge towards the A50 is now fully repaired and plans are afoot to work with the council on repairing the path from Foxcovert Lane towards the church.
  3. Efforts to try to establish a Neighbourhood Plan have floundered sadly.  Such a plan would become a legally binding document that influences future village development. An locals who wish to become involved would be very welcome.
  4. The ‘Walk To School’ project has seen is explore a number of options – including scoping for a countryside walk way behind the school: but this proved extremely expensive and the Walk to School group continue their efforts to secure a solution but the Parish Council are struggling to support this with anything realistic.
  5. The Superfast Broadband Scheme has been a huge benefit for some residents but not for more outlying houses and we continue to raise this issue with BT.  
  6. We remind ourselves that the old telephone box from outside the Village shop has an AED installed – and If you would like to have training regular monthly training is held at Knutsford Methodist Church please contact Knutsford First Responders Community Trust for more details. In addition we now need to consider what we might use the other telephone Box for and this will be decided in parish meetings this year.
  7. Lower Peover Parish Council joined the ‘Operation Shield’ Project, being organized by the Cheshire Constabulary over 18 months ago: This is an initiative on their behalf to mark valuable items within the home which are frequently stolen when a burglary takes place.  We have held a few events for the release of information and packs for local residents – but we still have a number of packs for residents unclaimed. The police are happy to support with the distribution of these and we need to gain an idea of names and addresses where packs are yet to be delivered. Please do participate. The village has gained a number of signs to warn potential intruders that this is an Operation Shield area.

Please contact our Clerk or any member of the Parish Council if you have any comments relevant to Lower Peover or if you have any suggestions for future projects.

EU Settlement Scheme – Practical Support for Vulnerable EEA and Swiss citizens in Cheshire East

June 13th, 2019 | Posted by Sarah Morgan in News - (Comments Off on EU Settlement Scheme – Practical Support for Vulnerable EEA and Swiss citizens in Cheshire East)

Community & Voluntary Services Cheshire East (CVS) is offering practical support for EEA and Swiss citizens to complete their EU Settlement Scheme applications.  

CVS, in partnership with the Citizens Advice service in Cheshire East has received funding from the Home Office to deliver practical support for vulnerable EEA and Swiss citizens to complete their EU Settlement Scheme applications. This project will be supporting EU residents living or working in Cheshire East who may be marginalised or in need of extra help applying to the EU Settlement Scheme.  

Those who may require additional support include victims of domestic abuse, those with severe mental health conditions, those without a permanent address, and those who are elderly or isolated. 

 CVS is one of 57 organisations who have received a share of £9m that has been made available across the UK for voluntary and community sector organisations to support vulnerable EU citizens.  

UK Immigration Minister, Rt Hon Caroline Nokes said: 

 “EU citizens are our friends, family and neighbours, and we want them to stay.” 

“We are determined to ensure that no one is left behind, which is why we have made £9 million available to community and voluntary organisations to provide support to vulnerable people who may have difficulties applying.”

“I’m delighted that CVS Cheshire East will be working in partnership with us to ensure that everyone has the support they need to apply.” 

EU citizens applying to the Scheme only need to complete three key steps – prove their identity, show that they live in the UK, and declare any criminal convictions. Applicants can use any laptop, tablet or mobile device to apply. 

Caroline Whitney, Chief Executive of CVS Cheshire East says: 

“I am pleased that CVS in partnership with our local Citizens Advice have been able to access this funding. It was important to us that our local community had the chance to access one to one support and advice in completing their applications and this funding has given us the opportunity to achieve this.  Through this funding, we are able to reach and support those that most need our help.“ 

To access this help, CVS are urging anyone in Cheshire East and surrounding areas who feel they need additional support to contact them. They can be contacted on: 

01270 763100, or through our website 

Additional support is also available to those EU citizens in the UK who do not have the appropriate access, skills or confidence to apply online. This includes over 200 assisted digital locations across the UK where applicants can be supported through their application.  

Deal or no deal, EU citizens will have until at least 31 December 2020 to apply.

There was no guest speaker this month, the meeting was mainly concerned with discussing the two resolutions being put forward by NFWI this year and deciding which one our members wanted to support.

The remainder of the meeting was spent discussing the decoration of the bauble we have been asked to provide for the Centenary celebrations of the Cheshire Federation of the WI celebrations this year, the Cheshire Show arrangements, our October meeting Craft Show and the various outings we have planned over the next few months.

Our next meeting will be on Wednesday June 5th at 7.30pm in Lower Peover School, when the speaker will be Rowena Lovalt and the talk “A Lingerie Designers Life”, and we invite anyone who may be interested to come and join us.
