Here’s our updated list following on from our article about the Neighbourhood Alert System, which is helping to prevent crime in Bramhall and Cheadle Hulme.
Neighbourhood Alert System
We have encouraged people to step forward to be coordinators on their roads and invite their neighbours to join a WhatsApp group where you will be able to share information or any concerns you have. If someone’s alarm has been going off, or you notice suspicious activity a simple message in the group can make sure neighbours are aware and are alert. This isn’t a replacement of the existing Neighbour Watch Schemes but acts as an instant way to communicate with your neighbours and share information with the police.
We have had a great response from the local residents joining the WhatsApp groups and co-ordinators stepping forward, but we need more!

Here’s the list for Bramhall so far, so if you are interested in joining your roads WhatsApp group chat please get in contact:
We will NOT make the names and phone numbers of co-ordinators public, so please get in touch with Wendy for Bramhall email@example.com and Kate for Cheadle Hulme firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Please head to the I Love Cheadle Hulme for the Cheadle Hulme Roads.
Please note that NO contact details with be shared with ANYONE except your coordinator.
The coordinator’s role is not particularly daunting, but would involve the following :
Let’s get neighbours talking again!
Always Report. Always.
We find it reassuring to know that our policing team DO take any reports of thefts and intruders very seriously. Even if nothing is taken, or if it was just an unlocked car rifled through, the police need to know about it – so local policing teams can respond to patterns or frequencies. However, both officers were also quick to reassure residents that action IS taken and arrests HAVE been made – although that can’t always be made public. Even the slightest suspicion of anti-social behaviour or criminal activity should be reported on 101 – and ALWAYS 999 for a crime in progress or person in danger.
We have been liaising with our local PCSO – Maureen Crehan and she will gladly attend any meetings or answer any question you may have. Her email is email@example.com and phone number 0161 439 2189
So let’s get something positive from this – build our community spirit and keep Cheadle Hulme and Bramhall as sought-after, friendly places to live and work.
