Beware of Bogus Callers

Over the last couple of weeks there have been reports of bogus callers knocking on doors in Calver claiming to be raising money for differing charities, including ‘ Cats and Dogs’ and another night it was “ Guide Dogs’. Please be aware. The Police have been informed and have advised parishioners to be vigilant and have offered the following advice :-

    1. If you are not sure who is at the door, don’t open it.
    1. Check the identity of any caller by their ID they are wearing if they have one and confirm who they are by calling the company they work for.
    1. If not sure ring or ask the a neighbour to come round to check them before you open the door.
    1. Tell them to come back at a time what suits you and when you know when someone will be home with you.
