Please be aware that suspicious people have been seen approaching the village, on foot, from the A47. Various villagers have also had a man call, allegedly on behalf of air ambulance, to sign them up to a lottery. One villager asked for the telephone number to get further information but there was none.
Incidents such as these are indeed suspicious and villagers are advised to call 101 to report such people in the village and of course advise the NHW coordinator, 717623 or [email protected] so the matter can go straight to our local policeman and announcements such as this can be sent around on our email linked to website system.
There is often no lottery at all but you are parting with your bank details to a stranger!! There is a high probability they will also be checking your security while engaging you in conversation.
Please ensure your safety and that of your neighbours in the event they do not have an internet connection. While some callers may be legitimate it is good practice not to buy from the door.
