Neighbourhood Watch Warning

    We have been told of a disturbing event experienced by one of our residents last week concerning a possible rouge trader. At a NhW Steering group meeting last week, we discussed the problem, and came to the conclusion that it would be beneficial to our residents, to give out a warning about this kind of problem.

    “Please be very careful who you allow to come on to your property asking to do any kind of maintenance work they think you should have done. If you haven’t asked for any work of this kind, then it could be a “rouge trader”trying to do work for you, generally badly, and requesting large amounts of money from you as payment for the unwanted work.

    There have been instances of this kind of behaviour in and around our village,so please be aware and don’t pay for any work you haven’t asked for.”

    There is a supply of “No Cold Callers” stickers to place on your front door in the Parish Council Office. Please call into the office between 9.00 am and 1.00 pm if you would like one.
