BEAUTIFUL BUT DEADLY
United Utilities have asked the Parish Council to remind people about the dangers of swimming in reservoirs.
Freezing water even in summer, hidden debris, underwater currents, isolated locations to which it might be difficult to get help, depth and steep sides all help to make them deadly. Each year around 400 people die from drowning and thousands are seriously injured
Stay Safe. Don’t swim in reservoirs

CELEBRATING THE 90th BIRTHDAY OF THE QUEEN
On 11th June 2016 we enjoyed the 'Queen's Birthday Bash', opened by the lady mayor of Chorley and very well attended inspite of a rainy start! There was something for everyone, wonderful refreshments in the Bowling hut; james and cakes and a bottle tombola from the WI; Boules; Face painting; Tug of War; and the wonderful parade of crowns fit for a monarch by the school children. At the end of the afternoon a toast was raised to her majesty.
BRETHERTON IN TOUCH
There is now a village face book page where information about forthcoming dates etc is posted. The page has already helped a dog to be reunited with its owner as well as informing residents about events and displaying village news.
Please be aware that there is a phone scam where someone rings, supposedly from BT to tell callers that their I.P. address is being used by someone illegally. Many people in the village are BT customers and could be taken in by the plausable nature of this call. If in doubt, hang up and ring BT either from a different phone or after an interval of about 3 minutes.
To keep informed about telephone scams and other crimes in the area sign up to regular bulletins from Lancashire Constabulary, at their IN THE KNOW website

PACT Meetings (POLICE AND COMMUNITIES TOGETHER)
There have not been any PACT meetings in the Rural West Parishes (Bretherton, Mawdesley, Ulnes Walton, Eccleston, Croston, Charnock Richard and Heskin) for a while as the team felt that they were not getting enough input from members of the public. It was decided to discontinue PACT meetings for these parishes partly to free up time the PCSOs could be on patrol. If any members of the public wish to see the team with any questions or issues, Coppull Police Station (where they are based) is open every Wednesday from 17:00-19:00hrs. The PCSO for our area is Maria Featherstone.
The team have facebook and twitter sessions instead where they are online to answer questions, (however obscure they may be).
The links to these forums are: www.facebook.com/chorleypolice
To receive emails about neighbourhood issues and information about PACT on-line sessions sign up to ‘In the Know’ www.stayintheknow.co.uk
In The Know is a free messaging service brought to you by Lancashire Police where you can decide when and how you are kept informed about the issues that matter to you.
