Olympic Torch comes to Chester
On Tuesday 29th May, Chester played overnight
host to the Olympic Flame on its tour of the UK. A number of
Chester Outer Police &
officers along with
other colleagues and Special Constables were on duty to take charge
of the next stage as the Olympic Torch team entered Cheshire from
Thousands of people came to view the progress
of the torch as it entered Chester and came to its overnight halt
at the Chester Racecourse.
The torch procession and the party at the racecourse proved to
be a great success and passed without incident.
During the evening, PC’s Darren Franks and Paul Taylor came
across Olympic competitor and three times World Gymnastics champion
– Beth Tweddle MBE. Beth carried the torch over from
Flintshire to Cheshire and was later sighted by Paul and
Darren as she travelled home with her family.

On Thursday 28th May Police Community
Support Officer (PCSO) Karen Dennis and Bishops Library staff held
a Jubilee Party with local childminders and Noahs Ark Nursery for
children under school age. The event was very well attended with
over forty children between 0 and 5 years and their carers enjoying
a two hour celebration party in which they made crowns, sang
nursery rhymes and had a story about the Queen.
Karen Dennis showed
the children the Diamond Jubilee Medal awarded to
her by the Queen for five years service. Ann Doris, Community
Representative from Sainsburys brought a picnic kindly donated by
the store for the event.
Dennis has made
strong links with the childminders and nurserys in the area and
with Beat Manager PC Malone they often visit young children's
groups to talk about the role of the Police and keeping safe. This
helps enormously with breaking down barriers with children from an
early age and helping them trust and understand that the police
help people in many ways.
Childminders provide excellent information about the community
in which they live and work. Issues reported to Karen relating to
anti-social behaviour, such as litter and underage drinking can be
addressed through multi -agency working with the Council Wardens
and other agencies.
