This section of Tattenhall Online includes a wide range of local services such as education and health, parish and borough councils, the post office and emergency services. Below is a searchable directory of all the services in the local area. You can search for individual services or a category i.e. 'education', 'health' etc.
If you believe other services should be included in the directory please contact the webteam and we will consider adding it.
101 is the number to call when you want to contact your local police in England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland – when it's less urgent than a 999 call.
When should I use 101?
You should call 101 to report crime and other concerns that do not require an emergency response. For example, if your car has been stolen, your property has been damaged, you suspect drug use or dealing in your neighbourhood. Or to report a minor traffic collision, give the police information about crime in your area, speak to the police about a general enquiry.
You should always call 999 when it is an emergency, such as when a crime is in progress, someone suspected of a crime is nearby, when there is danger to life or when violence is being used or threatened.

HomeWatch Lost Dogs Division.
This section is to help reunite the owners of animals. Both farm and domestic pets that are reported to us either missing or found in or just beyond the Tattenhall Ward area. Reporting loose farm animals may help avoid needless road collisions. If you have a lost or found animal for local assistance please contact us soonest to spread the word widely, as the alternative should the dog warden become involved may be costly. E-mail contact as in the HomeWatch section, if possible please include a Jpeg photo of the missing or found pet. If you are looking to give a pet a caring home we recommend that you contact www.capricornrescue.org/ their website regularly shows pictures of animals in need of a good caring home. If
you know of other reputable rescue centres you would recommend please get in touch.
The Council's Dog Warden regularly picks up lost or
abandoned dogs. Photographs of the dogs found in the Cheshire West and Chester area within the last week are shown at www.cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk/residents/pests-pollution-food-safety/animal-welfare/stray-and-abandoned-dogs/stray-dog-photographs.aspx
those not claimed immediately by their owners are taken to private kennels. After seven days if they are left unclaimed they are taken to kennels to be re-homed. The charges for the return of dogs picked up by the dog warden are as follows:
£82.80 on first day plus kennelling fees of £10.80 per additional day.

We have all worked very hard to acquire whatever possessions we have. It makes sense to work together to prevent travelling and opportunist criminals as much as possible by giving our local Police and the wider area a "heads-up" on potential problems as soon as possible when we feel a suspicious situation has occurred.
Our contact area not only involves Tattenhall but No Man's Heath, Coddington, Milton Green, Huxley/ Hargrave, Tiverton and Beeston, along with numerous hamlets and individuals within that wide area. The idea is that they are our picket line as we are theirs.
If you would like to become a contact you will receive some updates that on occasion may not be of interest to your particular village so hopefully you won't mind the odd delete. However they may show an increasing trend that may in time affect your area, or hopefully with your feedback and information stave off problems for your and neighbouring areas.
As a potential contact via e-mail or telephone we would be very interested in hearing about any unsolicited callers, especially at remote locations in your area that we can forward to the Police & contacts in the wider area.
Also, loose stock or lost and found pets that we can inform their owners or for our contacts to look out for. Pictures of a lost pet sent to us in jpeg are always helpful. As well as primarily for the animals' safety and the owners' peace of mind, this hopefully can also avoid any unnecessary road collisions in our areas. Please check out our HomeWatch Lost Dog Division section.
Early updates on any road collisions in the area are also welcome, informing our contacts, helps to avoid traffic congestion around a collision, helping to reduce our local Police's workload and you avoiding traffic jams.
Also in case you were not aware we security mark bikes, garden items, power tools etc for FREE. This is by engraving the post code and house name on the items for free in connection with the Chester Crime Prevention Panel. We also have free UV marker pens. In addition we have indelible specialist non invasive marking for the more expensive carbon fibre cycles that are a prime target for the thieves.
Police make regular checks on suspect vehicles entering & leaving our areas. They have in the past had to let potential thieves go because there wasn't a recognisable way of identifying and linking the items on board the suspect's vehicle to a rightful owner. Security marking is the best way of having property returned when found by the Police.
