Warning – Unlicensed Pedlars

Unlicensed pedlars – Clare – Friday am
Two pedlars with no licence, just amateur ID cards, calling in Nethergate Street, Clare, heading towards Ashen Road, late Friday morning.  Householder did not report to 101 as urgent appointment elsewhere.

If they call on you, please be sure to report to 101 as it is illegal to sell goods door-to-door without a pedlar’s licence and the police will try to intercept.

Pedlars Certificate

Our Neighbourhood Watch remind us to be on the outlook for unlicensed  pedlars knocking at our doors. Seeking to sell us all kinds of items, they will knock at your door and try to persuade you to buy. You should ask to see their Pedlars Certificate and we show the one issued by Essex police. Please note, this is the ONLY form of legitimate ID for pedlars in this area.



We are generally fortunate that we live in a relatively crime free location but we are not immune. A number of properties were the subject of burglary last week with the perpetrators seemingly  targeting garden sheds and garages. Signs were found that they had be scouting out other houses as well.

Please be on the lookout for any suspicious activity and in particular a white Volvo estate.
