Hope everyone is well and all survived the storms with not much disruption. I just wanted to provide a little update as it’s been a while.

You might have seen via social media that we organised for Merseyside Mounted unit to come over and assist us in close pass operation In Whitegate. This running of this worked really well and the location was chosen due to statistics that the BHS provided from their reports. Many drivers were spoken to and educated on the safe passing of horses. We are looking into running another one and again the location will be chosen from the statistics but also the road and the layout must to be suitable, if not it might be that we run it on a nearby road.  

Following on from this operation I am currently working on a new road safety initiative that will involve you as the public. I have a lot of work to do in the background to get this up and running and its taking time but when its ready I will be in contact with you all for anyone who would like to be involved.

I met with the BHS a few weeks ago to discuss working together on future plans so these will be shared throughout the year.

Please feel free to send in any incidents or anything you would like me to post out to other members via Some members have village whatsapp groups and one person will whatsapp me any suspicious incidents etc, this can then be shared to members in the nearby area.

Kind regards
