Community Speed Watch

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

Community speed watch

Community Speed Watch is a national initiative where active members of local communities supported by their local PCSO monitor the speeds of vehicles using speed detection devices.

Vehicles exceeding the speed limit are referred to the police with the aim of educating drivers to reduce their speeds. In cases where education is blatantly ignored and evidence of repeat or excessive offences is collated, enforcement and prosecution follow.

We are looking for volunteers to join our CSW team and help keep your local roads safe from excessive speeds.

If you would like any further information or would like to volunteer to start a watch in your area please contact me directly at

PC Chairman’s report – February 23rd 2021

Dear Mottram St Andrew residents,

On Monday the Prime Minister set out his road map for the final stage of our long and painful COVID-19 journey. The vaccine rollout has ensured that the light at the end of a very dark tunnel, is now in our sights.

Some of you may have endured great suffering and/or hardship in the last twelve months, for losing family or friends, a job or simply freedom, has been incredibly hard. And yet, as we transition from winter into spring, and snowdrops and daffodils emerge from the soil once more, optimism takes over our emotions.

Since January last year, all Parish Council meetings have been held on Zoom. So, too, have all meetings with Cheshire East Council and the Cheshire Association of Local Councils (ChALC). Who, by now, has not heard of ChALC’s Jackie Weaver? Unknown previously outside Cheshire, there can be few people in the whole country who have not seen or read about her bruising encounter with some of Handforth’s Parish Councillors. Jackie acquitted herself very well – fortunately, MStA PC meetings are usually far more sedate and civilised affairs!

Whilst Zoom has been a lifesaver in many ways, it is no substitute for human contact. We look forward with enthusiasm to the next time we can meet in person.

The next Parish Council meeting will be held on Zoom at 6.30pm on Monday March 15th. One of the agenda items concerns a proposal by Cheshire East to merge certain parishes across the county. In our case, the recommendation is that we are merged with Over Alderley. This would mean a reduction in the number of councillors and the need for only one Clerk and is bound to provoke a healthy debate as to the pros and cons of such a move. If you have a view on the subject, you are most welcome to attend the meeting on Zoom (login details will appear on notice boards and on the week before) or you may email your comments to me at the email address below.

In the meantime, I hope you are all getting your vaccinations and that you are maintaining good health, both physical and mental.

Best wishes


Robert Hughes

29 March: What’s changed

Some of the rules on what you can and cannot do changed on 29 March. However, many restrictions remain in place. You must not socialise indoors with anyone you do not live with, unless they are part of your support bubble (if you are eligible). You should continue to work from home if you can and minimise the number of journeys you make where possible. You should get a test and follow the stay at home guidance if you have COVID-19 symptoms.

You can read the ‘COVID-19 Response – Spring 2021 (roadmap)’ for more information on the roadmap out of lockdown in England. It is underpinned by law.

From 29 March:

  • you can meet outdoors either in a group of 6 (from any number of households), or in a group of any size from up to 2 households (a household can include an existing support bubble, if eligible)
  • you can take part in formally organised outdoor sports with any number of people (outdoor sports venues and facilities will be able to reopen)
  • childcare and supervised activities are allowed outdoors for all children
  • formally organised parent and child groups can take place outdoors for up to 15 attendees. Children under 5 will not be counted in this number

Keeping yourself and others safe

Infection Status in the Village

On this page you will find the latest information about the status of our village. We need you to let us know if you or someone close to you has the infection. Please email: We will maintain your confidentiality and will just publish numbers and approximate location of the disease. Please bear in mind that this will not take into account those who remain apparently asymptomatic.

Total Number of Confirmed Infected People as of 10/05/21

7 plus 2 un-confirmed

Total Number of Confirmed Fatalities as at 10/05/21

Cases in East Cheshire as at 10/05/21
There have been 61 new cases in last 7 days (Decrease of 20.8% over previous week)

Total Covid-19 related deaths in East Cheshire as at 10/05/21

The number of new daily confirmed cases is now falling again, probably as a result of the lockdown restrictions and vaccine roll out, so thank you for your compliance. Use common sense, this pandemic is not yet over. The vaccination programme is rolling along very nicely but we still need to take precautions. PLEASE take responsibility for your actions and protect the vulnerable. Someone is still passing on this virus to others.

Our local guidance from 29th March is:

Stay Local

  • Rule of 6 or two households outdoors. No household mixing indoors.
  • Outdoor hospitality opens
  • Outdoor sport and leisure facilities.
  • Organised outdoor sport allowed (children and adults).
  • Minimise travel. No holidays.
  • Outdoor parent & child groups (up to 15 parents).
