Wrightington Parish Council

Police and Communities Together

As part of Operation Pathway pay particular attention to parking and speeding issues in the area, as well as other driving offences.

PLEASE NOTE: “The Wrightington /Appley Bridge PACT meetings will no longer be held in their usual format. Despite extensive effort by the Neighbourhood Policing Team over the past few years to engage with local communities, it has been extremely difficult to secure regular attendance at the meetings. It has therefore been decided that your local Neighbourhood Policing Team will endeavour to attend the Wrightington Coffee mornings where operational commitments allow to engage with local residents. The coffee mornings are arranged by the Parish Council Clerk for Wrightington, the first one will be on the 1st April 2011.

What do you want to happen in your area?

Your local team is all about finding local solutions to local issues and works closely with organisations to make this happen. It runs monthly meetings called Police and Communities Together (PACT) where you can talk about things that are happening in your area that you think need sorting out.
