A BIG THANK YOU

The Parish Council would like to thank everyone who contributed to the refurbishment of the War Memorial, which has received many compliments and which now, once again, honours those who gave their lives in the service of their country.

Residents,  Local Businesses ,  Community Organisations, Landowners  and Chorley Council,  played their part in many  ways; making donations,  giving grants, giving of their  time and expertise,  providing help in kind, organising fund raising events  and supporting fund raising events.

Lord Lilford has also kindly offered the land on which the War Memorial is built to the Parish Council for the price of 'one red poppy'

Many thanks to everyone once again.

 

Barbara Farbon.

Chair of the Parish Council

FOSTERING

 

Lancashire County Council is asking people to consider if they could help a child or young person achieve their dreams by becoming a foster carer.

 

The new campaign focusses on the need for new foster carers to help children in care reach their true potential. The county council has recently raised their allowances for new foster carers in recognition of their valuable role and rising costs. This means that newly approved foster carers can expect to receive between £241 and £415 to meet the needs of each child they care for.

 

The council is currently recruiting new foster carers to look after around 20 children a week who come into their care and a package of support is available 24/7 to help foster carers in their role, including local support groups, their own social worker, a dedicated helpline and flexible training.

 

If you have a spare room and want to make a difference to a young person's life, could you be a foster carer for your local authority?

 

For more information, visit www.lancashire.gov.uk/fostering or call their friendly team on 0300 123 6723.

          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

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.

 TELEPHONE SCAM

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.
