I have reports of Nottingham Knockers right across the area.  We haven’t seen them for some time.  Can everyone please remember:
 
You must not buy anything from them !
 
Use these words, which everyone across the entire Thames Valley uses and it sends a message that you are not, an easy target:
 
‘I AM SORRY, I DO NOT BUY GOODS AND SERVICES AT THE DOOR THANKYOU.’
 
Nothing more - then politely, but firmly, close the door.
 
Do not enter into conversation with them - They could say:
 
‘I tried the house next door, but there was no rely’
 
You respond:
‘No, they are on six week holiday in the Caribbean / on a cruise, they won’t be back for weeks’ !!!!
 
All salesmen, who go door to door selling anything, must have a ‘Pedlar’s Certificate’ apart from to sell books and food.
 
Pedlar’s Certificates, are issued by police forces anywhere and are valid across the country.  It is a small 6 inch square white form.  They are only issued, to people ‘of good character’.  If the person at your door, happens to mention that they have been to prison and are now working their way back into society - you know instantly - they do not, have a Pedlar’s Certicate.
 
What they will show you, is usually a larger yellow ‘Hawker’s Licence’.  There is no such thing, they are simply produced on a computer and printed out.
 
This is a scam, to locate elderly / vulnerable residents, who are easily parted from their hard earned cash !  The addresses arereassurance,  noted and sold on to scammers.  Honor from Trading Standards, along with Lorraine Rellis and Clive Dent, both RBWM Community Wardens, visit elderly victims of frauds, or anyone who may have been scammed, to make sure they receive all the help and assistance, they need.
 
NEXT:  Two dogs stolen in Wraysbury on Monday.  One was witnessed - see below.  If you have dogs, please take extra precautions for the time being.  There was also the theft of a rear axle, from an MGB GT being restored and left in parts, on the driveway.
 
9/4  Monday 10 p.m. - 10.15 p.m.  Old Mill Place, Wraysbury.  The owner let their dog out into their front garden, to go to the toilet and walked along the road for 5 minutes while she did it.  He looked back to see a van pull up outside his house, a man get out, grab his dog, get back in the car and drive off at speed !  The car was a black VW Golf.  The man is described of Eastern European appearance, dark hair, wearing a dark jacket.  He was the passenger in the car.  He was shouting at the driver in possibly polish to drive away.  The dog is a Bishon Poo, a Frise cross with a Poodle, with a distinctive black spot on his left hand side.  She is microchipped.
10/4  Monday 6 p.m. / midnight.  Stanwell Road, Horton.  The owner let their dog out to go the toilet into their front garden.  When they went to let him back in he had vanished and the owner believes he has been stolen as the front garden is well fences to stop him getting out.  This dog is a black and white 4 year old Pug.  Two dogs in one night is very suspicious - if you have a valuable or precious dog, can you be extra cautious at this time and report anyone driving up and down your road, or walking about possibly looking for dogs, on the 101 number.
9/4  Monday 9.10 a.m.  Gloucester Drive, Wraysbury.  Rear axle of a MGB GT stolen from the driveway.  The car is being restored and had been dismantles.  Once again - did anyone see anything ?  A car / flatbed lorry, driving up and down the road slowly, looking up driveways Huh
 
NEXT: a case of lead theft from the roof of a school in Ascot !
 
28/3 - 11/4  School, Church Road.  Lead stolen from the roof.  Did anyone see anything suspicious around the school, a van parked up, workmen on the roof or around the building, as they usually remove the lead and drop it down from the roof - which could be noisy and visible - ?  They will generally wear yellow Hi Viz jackets - so that they look official.
