Rogue trader warning

The police have sent the following:
 
Residents are being urged to be vigilant following reports of suspected rogue traders operating in the county yesterday (9 September).
 
Police received several calls concerning a man cold calling at address and approaching people in the street trying to sell pressure washers, power tools and diesel generators.
 
The man was driving a silver transit style van and incidents were reported in Hardley Road and Norwich Road in Chedgrave; the industrial estate in Loddon; Arlington Garderns in Atlleborough; Park Road in Spixworth; Thieves Lane in Salhouse; and Wroxham Road in Coltishall.
 
Norfolk County Council’s Trading Standards Officers request that residents never agree to buy goods from, or have work done, by someone that calls unannounced at their door, or approaches them on the street.
 
Often such traders don’t provide full names, trading addresses or contact telephone numbers, resulting in it being virtually impossible to trace them if there are any problems with the work or goods – which is all too often the case.
 
Anyone with information about suspected rogue traders should contact police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Two casual vacancies on parish council

Debra Hurst and Polly Bryant have resigned from the Parish Council as they are both moving away from the area. We thank them for their time and commitment to the Council.

These two vacancies are now being advertised, see notice below. If no election is requested then the Parish Council will co-opt two new councillors at its meeting on 29th September.

If you are interested in being considered for one of the vacancies please contact the clerk, Pauline James on 01493 751070 or paulinejames@aol.com, or speak to one of the parish councillors.  You must be over 18 and live or work in Acle.

Please note that all the parish councillors will step down at the elections in May 2015 so anyone co-opted will only serve as a councillor until May 2015, but can of course stand for re-election at that date.
