7pm Wednesday 24th February
Lewis Carroll Centre
You are invited to the relaunch of the
HOME WATCH SCHEME FOR HATTON
There have been a number of recent incidents in Hatton which makes
it an ideal time to launch the scheme
The Police and Police Commissioner for Cheshire, as well as our PCSO Steve Parr
, will be there to hear your views and provide advice.
The meeting will also provide a forum for discussing other important issues in the village, such as speeding.
Being aware and helping to report anything out of the ordinary can help to keep Hatton safer, but we need to know what you see as issues, so please come along on Wednesday 24th February
Operation Shield is the DNA marking system for equipment in homes that Steve Parr rolled out in the Village last year. There is going to be an upgrade to this system available soon, that again Steve will be offering to us.

The Community and Social Activity Group needs ideas and people to join us!
We’re meeting on Wed 20th Jan in the Hatton Pub and Grill at 7.30pm, so do please join us if you can, to share your ideas.
We are a busy bunch with current activities including Halloween, Carol Singing, Manchester trip, Theatre trips, Film Club, Walking Group, Lunches, Fun Day and lots more. New ideas and new faces, of all ages, would be really welcome. Please email email@example.com if you are interested.
Lots of people help in many different ways to make Hatton what it is! They don’t ask for or expect for thanks or praise. However sometimes it is nice for their work to be recognised. The Parish Council enters Hatton each year to the Community Action Competitions and this year we did really well!
Roger Dickin attended the Cheshire Community Action Awards Evening on behalf of the Parish Council and HVPIG on Thursday 15th October in Ellesmere Port.
Hatton was awarded:-
- Runner –Up In The Best Kept Village (under 400 population).
- Highly Commended in the prestigious Community Spirit Award.
- Little Gem for our Bus Shelter.
Congratulations and thanks to everyone!
