Wanted – Photos of village events 2002 to 2022

The Parish Council will be publishing an updated version of the book of the village – “Over Peover – A Cheshire Parish”.

The book was first published in 2002 with over 1000 copies sold.

The new edition will also cover the years to 2022 by Barry Wienholdt, an author of the original book.

We need photographs of any interesting village events during the last 20 years.

If you can help please email any photos together with a brief description of the event/photo and the year it was taken to:


Colshaw Hall Charity Shoot

Colshaw Hall Country Estate is hosting a charity shoot in aid of Brainwave, the Children’s charity on Thursday 22nd September.  Shooting will take place between 9am and 2pm. We apologise for any noise disruption this will cause to the village during the shoot and also wish to make residents with livestock aware of the noise.

Thank you for your understanding; this is a large fundraiser for the charity.

Rural Crime Survey

I wanted to get in touch to let you know that today I have launched a Rural Crime survey that will run throughout the summer.

Around two thirds of Cheshire is classed as rural, and I know from the contact I’ve had from residents and elected representatives across the county that rural crime can affect everyone. From theft of equipment and dangerous use of country roads to harming wildlife and anti-social behaviour, the scope and impact of rural crime is varied.

Through this survey I hope to build a better picture of how rural crime affects different communities across Cheshire. I want to understand what our Rural Crime Team does well and what good practice can be expanded further, and I want to know where the police approach can improve and which issues residents believe need a greater focus. People’s feedback will give me a greater insight into how I can hold the Chief Constable to account for how Cheshire Police prevents and tackles rural crime.

Rural crime has the potential to devastate livelihoods and wreck the scenic countryside we have on our doorstep. Whether we live or work in a rural area or visit there to enjoy one of Cheshire’s many natural beauty spots, I believe we all have a stake in ensuring our rural areas and communities are protected.

Please do share this survey so that residents can have their say: www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/ruralcrimesurvey2022

Kind Regards
