Message from the police

Tuesday 5th April 2011

This message relates to police log 477 02 April 2011.

The improving weather at this time of year usually brings out the rogue builders, gardeners, roofers etc. We have had several reports already.

Please be aware of the risks of employing tradesmen who cold call at your door which include: high - shoddy workmanship; very high prices which change as the job progresses; unnecessary work and intimidation if you don't pay promptly etc. 

It is much safer to use local tradesmen of known good reputation who should offer a written quote and a guarantee. If you feel that you have been deceived, please contact us 08452 777 444 with details of the company involved.

We ask you to make your neighbours aware, especially if elderly.

Please phone us with any information on 08452 777 444.
