Two Warning ALERTS FROM HAMPSHIRE TRADING STANDARDS SERVICE

Hampshire Trading Standards Service is warning the public to be wary of rogue trader’s cold calling offering TREE and GARDEN services. FORDINGBRIDGE has been targeted very recently.

Other concerns have been reports of telephone cold callers falsely claiming to be representing Hampshire County Council with regard to double glazing/window surveys. Our information was regarding the Winchester area but could easily affect the whole County.

Trading Standards would advise consumers not to agree to work that is instigated as a result of a cold call or via a leaflet drop. Consumers should obtain at least 3 written quotes from reputable businesses or traders who are either members of the Hampshire County Council Trading Standards Buy With Confidence Scheme or a recognised trade association.

Members of the Buy With Confidence scheme are fully audited to ensure their trading practices are legal, honest and fair. All members have been checked for trustworthiness and compliance with consumer protection laws. Details can be obtained by telephoning 01962 833620, emailing buy.with.confidence@hants.gov.uk or via the website www.buywithconfidence.gov.uk

Traders who agree work at the home of an individual or at a place other than their usual business premises are required by law to provide consumers with a Notice of Right to Cancel, which gives consumers a 14 day cooling off period from the date the work starts. So, legally, you may have the right to cancel even though work has commenced.

If anyone has any information about traders who are cold calling or requires any advice on doorstep crime they can contact Hampshire County Council's

Quick Response Team on 01962 833666

(Monday – Friday 0900hrs to 1700hrs)

where specially trained officers are on hand to provide advice.

If assistance is required outside of these hours please contact Hampshire Police on their non-urgent number 101 or dial 999 if you feel threatened or intimidated.

Please note that the coastal path between Beach Lane and the boundary with Vitalise (Waterside House) has a large hole in it at present. Hound PC is working to get this area surveyed and repaired, but in the meantime, please heed weather warnings and do not walk along there.

The Hard area outside the Royal Victoria Country Park is also very exposed to the elements - members of the public are asked to stay away from this area.

Hound Parish Council has closed the section of sea wall path that runs from Beach Lane to Waterside House. Due to the recent heavy rainfall, winds and the natural destructive power of the sea, it has unfortunately collapsed onto the beach. Therefore the Council urges Parishioners to avoid the path, as the area is structurally unsafe, and poses a serious hazard.

Sea viewHound is a village and civil parish in the borough of Eastleigh in southern Hampshire, England. The parish encompasses the villages of Netley Abbey, Butlocks Heath and Old Netley and includes such landmarks as Netley Castle and Netley Abbey Ancient Monument. In the 2001 census, the parish had a headcount of 6,846 living in 2,928 households.

The 1868 National Gazetteer described the parish as being in the Hundred of "Mainsbridge" and containing Sholing and Woolston as well as Netley. The land was mainly arable farmland at this point, with some pasture and woodland, including a substantial amount of common land. The parish is recorded from about 1370, when John de Bothby, Lord Chancellor of Ireland, held the living of Hound.
