Suspicious Activity in South Perrott
Recently there has been an incident in South Perrott where a resident was phoned by a company calling itself Nationwide Drains and Water Limited about a collapsed drain in their area. Permission was given for an inspection to be carried out which was done by two males in an unmarked metallic grey transit van (HW69 EJE) who subsequently reported various faults and produced a quote of £3000 to rectify.
The resident became suspicious and reported it to PCSO Alex Bishop who believes it was a ‘fishing trip’ to try to get business and possibly to scout the area. It is also being investigated by a Senior Trading Standards Officer.
Please remain alert to these kinds of activities and if in any doubt report the matter to PCSO Alex Bishop.
TAKING PRIDE IN SOUTH PERROTT
YOUR VILLAGE NEEDS YOU
The village of South Perrott has always had a wonderful community spirit with residents helping each other out. Lockdown has been no exception and highlighted how much we all need, and value, the support of our friends and neighbours. Now that times are hopefully getting back to normal the Parish Council would like to harness the many skills and abundant enthusiasm of the South Perrott residents to build a bank of people willing to give a few hours, whenever they are able, to keep our village one of the best in Dorset.
If you would like to help with, for example, hedge trimming, litter picking and small manual jobs around the village then the Parish Council would love to hear from you. You don’t have to commit on a regular basis and hopefully with small teams of like-minded people it will be fun as well as a beneficial community activity.
If you would like to be involved please contact our new Councillor, Gill Denny
