DOOR TO DOOR SALESMEN (December 2016)

  • Some people have expressed concern about recent visits from door to door salesmen. Young men are in the area selling mainly household and garden ware (such as dusters, oven gloves, gardening gloves). They say they have had a troubled background and are now trying to get some work-experience in selling. They often produce an ID tag.
  • The local Police have been contacted and know about the young men. The Police’s advice is that the men are from legitimate enterprises and most come from troubled backgrounds (their story is true). However, the Police say that if you feel intimidated or do not wish to engage with the men for any reason it is entirely up to you to tell them. Do not feel under any sort of obligation to them.
  • Here is some general guidance to help deal with door to door salespeople:
  • Look to see who is at the door
  • Put the chain on before you open the door
  • Take control:
  • 1) Check the seller’s identity
    2) Use direct language – but be polite
    3) Be prepared to interrupt
  • Don’t invite the person inside
  • If in any doubt, ask the person to leave

A riparian owner is someone who has any watercourse within or adjacent to any boundary of their property. Where a watercourse is sited between two or more property boundaries each owner may be equally responsible. Riparian owners are responsible for maintaining the river bed and banks within their section of the watercourse. It is their duty to work towards minimising pollution and preventing obstruction to the water flow.

White Clawed Crayfish alert (September 2016)

The Environment Agency is investigating the deaths of our rare protected native white clawed Crayfish in three locations across the Severn and Wye river catchment. We expect this to be confirmed as Crayfish Plague which is very infectious for Crayfish. White clawed Crayfish look like miniature lobsters, they hide away under rocks and logs during the day, and emerge during the night to eat. They are our largest freshwater invertebrate and the few remaining populations are very vulnerable to this disease and face local extinction. Crayfish Plague is a species specific disease and has no implications for human or other animal health. Dead white clawed Crayfish have been seen in The River Redlake, Shropshire.
