As the summer weather approaches we would like to remind all residents to ensure that doors and windows are kept secure when you are out. Even if you are at home please ensure your doors are locked. If you are working in the back garden keep the front door locked and secure; you don’t want any uninvited guests popping in. Keep your garden equipment locked away securely when not being used. You can’t cut your lawn without a lawn mower but a thief can make lots of money selling it. Should you require any advice on marking such equipment then please get in touch with us by by either phoning 101 or by attending Wincanton Police Station between 10:00 and 18:00 Monday - Friday. You can also contact us by visiting our website www.avonandsomerset.police.uk (click on contact us & then click on general enquiries).

Speeding vehicles continues to be an issue across the area and there is currently only one active speedwatch group in the Charlton Mackrell area. Our Speed enforcement unit are also regularly out and about monitoring the situation. If you want to make a difference to speed in the area then you may wish to consider volunteering to set up a new speedwatch group. At least four people are required to make this a success in any one area so if you would like to get involved please get in touch with the beat team by calling 101 or by attending Wincanton Police Station between 10:00 and 18:00 Monday to Friday.

– Speeding continues to be monitored with the most recent attendance at CSW including giving advice to a motorist making hand gestures to the roadside team.

We are receiving reports of people selling household goods door to door in the Wincanton Rural East area. A pedlar is someone who travels and trades on foot, going from town to town or house to house selling goods such as pictures and household goods or offering their skills in handicrafts. A pedlar must hold a certificate granted by a chief constable. The certificate is valid for one year and applies throughout the United Kingdom. Certificates cannot be issued to people under the age of 17. The certificate does not cover a person to sell food or drink, flowers, medicines, poisons, gunpowder or tobacco – all are prohibited items. Any person wishing to sell foodstuffs must make application to the local authority for licences to comply with food safety regulations Our advice to residents is this, if you’re not sure who is at your door, don’t open it or let anyone into your home. It’s your doorstep, your decision.

Since the spate of reports in door to door sellers (Pedlars) in April this has abated with no further reports of aggressive selling being reported to police.
