Cold Callers


There have been a number of reports of cold callers in Chirton & other villages.


If you recognise or realise that you have a cold-caller at your door, phone 101 immediately. This crime and harassment is a priority for the police and they will come out as soon as possible to, hopefully, catch the cold-caller whilst he/she is still in the neighbourhood. 
Please be ready to supply as much information about the cold-caller's appearance, including that of any accomplice who you may also see. Take vehicle registrations if you can see them and note in which direction the person is 'working'.
It is important to remember to keep your doors locked".

Changes coming to our recycling centres, including a 2 week closure for refurbishment - read more here:-
