Daventry Neighbourhood Policing Team have had an increase in calls regarding rogue traders cold-calling in villages and in Daventry town. These cold-callers have been offering to clean/jet-wash driveways, also offering gardening services and roof repair.
Please be vigilant when answering your door, if you do not know who it is, or you are not expecting visitors DO NOT ANSWER. Rogue traders will generally target the elderly and the vulnerable.
