Beware of Cold Callers in your area!

Police have seen an increase in reports of cold callers in rural villages

Please be aware door-to-door sales groups known as Nottingham Knockers have been reported recently. The group can be persistent using pressurised selling methods for cleaning products and household items.

If any sales person comes to your door selling any products we would urge people NOT to purchase items at the door and NOT to give personal details out. Residents are also advised to use precautionary measures such as a door chain.

To sell on the doorstep a valid pedlars certificate is required (not just ID with the persons photo on).

Please look out for any vulnerable neighbours that may be an easy target for such unwanted callers.

If you spot any such doorstep traders, do not answer the door to them and report sightings to the non-emergency police line on 101.
