Here is your monthly update from PCSO Zack Earl.
There has been an increase in workmen in the area going door to door offering goods and services. While many of these are legitimate, they could be rogue traders who are trying to scam you. If you do get one of these visitors and you do not want what they are offering, please just decline politely and close your door. If you believe that you are a victim of a rogue trader, or are concerned that a neighbour or family member may be, please report it to Trading Standards by calling 03454 04 05 06. If you feel threatened in anyway, call 999! Please give us as many details as possible including description of vehicles and people and any leaflets/brochures they have.
