Gardening work rogue traders

Alert message sent 03/11/2018 09:52:00

Information sent on behalf of Lincolnshire Police

Hello from Gainsborough Rural South

Over the past couple of weeks we have received several reports of persons knocking on peoples doors offering gardening work they often say they are working around the corner on another property which has not been true. In these cases the residents have paid significant amounts of monies and the garden has been left in disarray, the rubbish in one case dumped over the fence onto a footpath, another took the money and never did any work. 
 Please find reputable gardeners either through your family or friends.  Check their credentials and that they have a valid waste carriers licence to remove the garden rubbish.  do not be a victim of rogue traders.
