Please keep an eye out for anyone going door to door offering gardening services and/or handyman work. We have had an incident in the street where one of our more senior residents was targeted by two men doing gardening work which was followed by a demand for a relatively large amount of money.
Watch out for your neighbours, particularly those who are elderly and possibly more likely to fall for this sort of thing.
If you are needing work done, please ask your neighbours for advice, assistance or a recommendation. Don’t ever engage anyone to do work who cold calls you. There are plenty reputable companies out there who will quote for the work, so that you know what you will be paying and if you think it’s too expensive, you can just say no.
