Lots to start off with.
 
We have had Nottingham Knockers, right across RBWM in the last few days.  These are the young lads and girls now, who go door to door, selling household products.  We believe it is part of a scam, to locate elderly / vulnerable residents, who have cash in their houses.
 
If you get one at the door - please remember our NHW motto:
 
I am sorry, I do not buy goods and services, at the door - Thank you
 
Then firmly but politely, close the door.
 
This came in from Angus:
 
Hi Jeff
Just to let you know the Nottingham Knockers are in Datchet today - Leigh Park.
 
My wife answered the door and said there was nothing she wanted.
 
The hawker was then quite verbally abusive to her as he left.
 
Have others reported this to you?
 
Best regards
 
Angus
 
Yes everyone out there is brilliant and lets me know so that I can put something out to protect others.  I am really grateful for the feedback.
 
The only things that can be sold door to door without a Pedlars Certificate, are books and food.  Everyone else, needs a Pedlars Certificate.  This is a small white form about 4 inches square.  They are issued by the police, after a check in police computers.
 

 
Most Nottingham knockers have such a chequered past, they cannot get one, so they print off a bogus yellow ‘Hawkers Identification’.
 

 
 
NEXT - I saw this advertised recently and thought it was very useful:
 
The Bracknell Northern Parishes team, engaged with local Criminology students, to promote crime prevention advice during their Winter Burglary Campaign.
The A-level students, from Licensed Victuallers' School in Ascot, produced four short videos as part of their coursework, into crime prevention. The final cuts were shared on the Bracknell twitter feed and viewed nearly 7,000 times.
The initiative proved a great way to engage with the young people in the community, while promoting key burglary messages.
You can view the videos here:
