Rainhill Village Life - Supported by your Labour Councillors

Saturday, July 12, 2008


In Rainhill Village, the following areas were affected by car crime and burglary:-

Burglaries occurred in King Edward Road, View Road, Mill Lane, Warrington Road and Mooreway.

Cars were broken into in Station Street, Norlands Lane and St James Mount.

Cars were stolen from Warrington Road, Toftwood Gardens, Mill Lane and Garsdale Avenue.

Lynn Carberry, Neighbourhood Policing Coordinating Officer warns that sneak burglaries rise in the summer months. People forget to lock up and close all their windows. Burglars DO look for an easy target...!!!

Going on holiday...??? A relative should collect delivered mail. The Royal Mail's "Keepsafe" service will keep your mail for up to 2 months.
Cancel milk and newspaper deliveries.
Sounds daft but don't allow strangers to overhear you talking to friends about your holiday plans!!!
Finally trim the garden before departure and use automatic timer-switches to turn lights on when it goes dark.

  • Can you please clarify what period the latest crime figures cover? The posting does not make this clear - were these crimes committed (for example) over the past six months, the past month, or something different? As a resident of King Edward Road I am only aware of one burglary which happened several months ago.

    Nice to see some updates on the blog though.

  • Thanks for your question. The crime figures are for the two months of April and May. Regards, Steve Glover.
