ELDERLY residents in the Haydon Wick area continue to be targeted by rogue traders according to the North Swindon Neighbourhood Policing Team.

The traders are attempting to con residents out of large amounts of money for unwanted services.

Since the beginning of the New Year rogue traders have been offering to clean gutters, mend damage caused by the wind and repair or lay new driveways.

Police are reminding members of the community to be vigilant and to call in if they spot strangers on their vulnerable neighbours’ doorsteps.

If you are aware of someone who you feel is vulnerable, and who would benefit from expert advice on security and crime prevention at their home then the Bobby Van Trust can certainly help.
