Door to Door sales

Alert message sent 16/10/2019 12:30:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

Good Afternoon ,

We have recently been made aware of pedlars attempting to sell items/skills /handicrafts from door to door in the area.
In order to sell items door to door a pedlars certificate is required. A pedlars certificate can be obtained from the Police force where the applicant resides and is the only form of certificate or licence that allows a person to sell from door to door. A pedlars certificate issued by any Police force allows the pedlar to trade in any part of the UK.
Selling or attempting to sell items door to door without a pedlars certificate is an offence.
Normally pedlars will be dropped off  in an area for a few hours – this is then that the pedlars will begin to operate.
If you have any neighbours who are elderly please make sure that they are ok. The elderly and vulnerable can become an easy target. If you suspect that someone is being taken advantage of contact the Police on 101 non- emergency or 999 emergency.
Regular Police surgeries are held Weekly at Weaverham  community centre, monthly at Sandiway Village Hall and monthly at Acton Bridge Village Hall  . All dates of the surgeries are advertised at the community centre and also on the Cheshire  Police website. If you have any issues or concerns please come along to discuss.
