Tuesday 3rd July 2018

Our July meeting was a garden meeting held in the beautiful garden of one of our members. We all had a wonderful time – eating great food provided by all the members, drinking prosecco, chatting and enjoying the wonderful weather. There was also a display of all the member’s entries for the Cheshire Show. Although we are a comparatively small WI, we had great success with our entries this year. Lower Peover won the Middlewich Cup awarded for presentation and interpretation in the group entry. The theme was Land, Sea and Sky, and our combined craft and cookery exhibit celebrating the role of women in the army, navy and air force in the First World War, also received many compliments from the visiting public. Several of our individual entries were given second prize or commendations and one of our members won a first and best in class.
Our next meeting will be on Wednesday August 1st at 7.30pm in Lower Peover School, when the speaker will be Alf Hughes and the talk “Victorian Portraits”, and we invite anyone who may be interested to come and join us.

Wednesday 6th June 2018

The Guest Speaker this evening was Josephine Gosling, who gave us a talk entitled “Amazing Walks”. Josephine and her husband are keen walkers and over the years have walked in Europe, USA, Africa and Australia and of course extensively in the UK. She encouraged the walkers amongst us to research each walk before the start, particularly to seek out any historical monuments or places we might pass through en route. She illustrated the benefit of this information with a series of interesting photographs and historical facts about many of the walks they have undertaken over the years. The July meeting be a garden meeting held in the garden of one of our members.
Our next Wednesday meeting will be on Wednesday August 1st at 7.30pm in Lower Peover School, when the speaker will be Alf Hughes and the talk “Victorian Portraits”, and we invite anyone who may be interested to come and join us.

Wednesday 2nd May 2018

There was no guest speaker this month as the meeting was concerned with arrangements for future meetings and outings. Several outings have been arranged for 2018, including – The Terracotta Warriors in September, Arighi Bianchi in October, and Bents Garden Centre November/December. Members were asked to vote for speakers and topics to be discussed at future meetings, and ideas were requested for fund raising to enable booking of more expensive speakers. The venue for the garden meeting in July was also agreed. The rest of the evening was passed very enjoyably with several rounds of indoor bowling, tea and biscuits and a raffle.
Our next meeting will be on Wednesday June 6th at 7.30pm in Lower Peover School, when the speaker will be Josephine Gosling and the talk “Amazing Walks”, and we invite anyone who may be interested to come and join us.

Lower Peover WI- April 2018

August 26th, 2018 | Posted by Administrator in Events | News | WI News - (Comments Off on Lower Peover WI- April 2018)

Wednesday 4th April 2018

Our guest speakers this month were Graeme and Naomi Simister, volunteer Ambassadors for The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust in Cheshire. The main purpose of the Trust is to give disadvantaged, disabled and terminally ill children a 5 day holiday of a lifetime in an exciting and magical environment, where disability knows no barriers. They described how the Trust, which was started in 1985, has developed over the years. The original farm premises have been renovated and today can provide accommodation for up to 28 children (though this is usually less as carers need to be accommodated as well). In addition there are two flats that can accommodate whole families if required. The outside facilities include adventure playgrounds, farm animals, an aviary and even a pirate ship in the woods, whilst indoors there are art and music rooms, a sensory suite, and cinema. The talk was illustrated with an informative DVD showing children of all abilities thoroughly enjoying themselves on what in some cases is their first ever holiday and in some sadly their last. In addition to the holidays the Trust now holds Christmas parties every year in order to accommodate even more children. The provision of these programmes obviously comes at a cost and fundraising is continuously required, but they are supported by several well-known celebrities and local volunteers and we are sure that inspiring talks such as this will raise more awareness of, and support for, this wonderful unique local facility.
Our next meeting will be on Wednesday May 2nd at 7.30pm in Lower Peover School, when there will be a quiz and indoor bowling, and we invite anyone who may be interested to come and join us.

Northwich Local Policing Unit

July 17th, 2017 | Posted by Administrator in News - (Comments Off on Northwich Local Policing Unit)

Beware of Bogus HMRC Hoax Callers

Officers are reminding resident to remain vigilant following a multiple reports of hoax calls from people claiming to be from HMRC.
During the past week we have received three separate reports from residents in the Northwich area who have received calls from a man purporting to be from Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (HMRC).

On each occasion the victim was told they were being investigated by HMRC for an outstanding tax balance and if they didn’t settle the balance then they would be arrested. The caller was then informed that if they paid the balance within two hours they will not be arrested, and then told that the balance could only be settled using iTunes vouchers.

The victims were then advised to visit a high street supermarket or electronics store to purchase the vouchers and then call back the hoax caller and provide them with the serial numbers from the vouchers to settle their debt.

In each of these cases the victims have been told that they must purchase hundreds of pounds worth of vouchers or face the prospect of being arrested; which has caused anxiety and concern for all of the victims.

Thankfully in all three cases the victims did not fall for the scam and no money changed hands. However, having been made aware of these incidents we are working closely with local supermarkets and electronics stores to help prevent vulnerable residents from purchasing large quantities of vouchers.

I would also like to remind local residents that HMRC would never call you and ask you to settle a balance over the phone using vouchers. I advise anyone who believes that they may have been a victim to call us on 101.

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.

Don’t be driven to distraction by your mobile phone

It’s not fake news that using your mobile phone while driving is dangerous, but drivers appear to be choosing to ignore this fact.

Across Cheshire some motorists are being driven to distraction sending texts, making calls or updating their social media profile whilst on the move.

Cheshire Police is taking the opportunity to remind road users during the National Police Chiefs’ Council mobile phone enforcement week that they face a £200 fine and six points if they are caught in the act.

The campaign, which runs from 10th to 16th of July, will again urge motorists not to be distracted by their phone – the potential consequences of this can be serious which is why new legislation was introduced back in March, doubling the penalty you face if you’re caught.

Our officers are out on the roads 24/7 policing the county and targeting those who flout the law.  This week is our opportunity to reinforce the message that using a handheld mobile device is dangerous, completely reckless and will not be tolerated in Cheshire.

The safety of Cheshire’s roads is paramount and our Roads Policing Team will do all they can to enforce the law to keep our roads safe.

 

More than 250 dangerous drivers removed from the streets of Cheshire

More than 250 people are facing driving bans and large fines after getting behind the wheel after drinking alcohol or taking illegal drugs.

The operation, which ran throughout June 2017, saw officers from the force’s Roads Policing Unit carrying out additional checks on roads across the county in a bid to reduce the number of offenders and casualties.

In total 121 people were arrested for drink driving, while another 131 were arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of illegal drugs. The figures compare to 141 arrests for drink driving and 73 arrests for drug driving in June 2016. All of those arrested are now likely to face driving bans and large fines.

It’s disappointing to see that so many people still believe that it is acceptable to drive under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs.

The dangers of both drink and drug driving are well known – it affects your reaction time, making it harder for you to judge your speed, judge your distance between you and other vehicles and notice potential hazards. All of this means that you are more likely to be involved in a collision.

All of those arrested as part of this operation will now have to face the consequences of their actions, which will have a significant impact on both their personal and professional lives.

All roads policing officers in Cheshire are equipped with both alcohol testing kits and drugs wipes, which instantly detect whether a driver is under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs.

Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is extremely dangerous and I cannot reiterate enough how much drivers are risking their own lives and the lives of others.

While this operation has now concluded, our commitment to removing dangerous drivers from the streets of Cheshire continues, and we will use all of tools available to help us achieve our goal.

I also want to urge people to help us by coming forward to report anyone they believe may be under the influence. Together we can help make the roads across the county safer for everyone.

Speed Enforcement

On 12/7/17 speed enforcement was carried out on Sandy Lane, Weaverham where 37 vehicles were caught exceeding the 30mph speed limit.

 

On the same day also on Station Road, Weaverham, 4 were captured exceeding the limit of 30mph speed limit.

 

On 13/7/17  on Northwich Road, Weaverham  6 motorists were captured exceeding the 30mph limit between 08:33hrs & 09:53hrs and later on  Station Road, Acton Bridge where 13 motorists were caught exceeding the limit.

 

Drugs Warning

 

Dangers of taking Psychoactive Substances ( Lethal Highs)

Officers in other areas of the County including Chester and Cheshire East are warning residents about the dangers of taking psychoactive substances following an increase in the number of incidents. We have had none reported in our area at this present time but would like to warn people of the dangers. Over the past month we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of incidents in both areas involving psychoactive substances.    We are extremely concerned these substances could have led to a number of people being hospitalized. We would strongly urge people not to take these drugs and for people to be aware of the dangers of taking these substances.
If people have taken any psychoactive substances and have concerns about their health they should contact the medical services as soon as possible. The drugs are highly addictive and known to leave users in a ‘Zombie’ state. It is believed that psychoactive substances have been linked to hundreds of hospital admissions across the UK.

Updated info regarding Snapchat

 

Snapchat is a picture sharing app that is hugely popular with young people. As of May 2017, the app was attracting 166m users a day.   It is often referred to as ‘the sexting app’ – even though there’s no research showing that to be true, and plenty of anecdotal evidence suggesting that isn’t the reason most teens use it.  The app focuses on capturing ‘moments’ quickly with users taking images and videos and sending them instantly.

The unique feature of Snapchat is that images disappear within seconds. Snapchat users can specify how many seconds they would like their images to be seen by the recipient(s). This can range from 1 to 10 seconds. Snapchat’s latest update, as of June 2017, is a location-sharing feature called Snap Map.  This feature has prompted some concern from parents and professionals working with children over privacy, and who can find out the exact location of their kids as you don’t need to be friends with a user for them to see where you are.

To combat this, users can specify who they share their whereabouts with – all their friends or just a select few. They can even set it to ‘ghost mode’, where they can see where others are without sharing their own location.  Thinkuknow – the education programme of The National Crime Agency’s child protection command CEOP –  has created a guide for parents and carers to help them understand the functions and features of Snapchat and ways to help young people stay safe while using it.
