Doorstep Callers in Northleach Again

We have just heard that there are some people going around Northleach knocking on doors and trying to sell things. This has been reported it to the police but please report it yourself if you wish. Below is previous communication from the police about this with some information on “Nottingham Knockers”, which is the generic term for this type of seller. A “no cold callers” sticker is attached that may be of use.

“This message comes to you from the Gloucestershire Constabulary. Our telephone number for non-emergencies is 101 and calls cost 15p each. Visit the Constabulary website at www.gloucestershire.police.uk.

This is a message from the North Cotswolds Local Policing Team. Please continue to encourage your members to report similar incidents in the future so that these door step sellers may be discouraged from entering Gloucestershire.

Here is the advice from the Local Policing Team and Neighbourhood Watch: Continue reading

Re-open the Old A40

Road-closed-sign-oldA40-220wThe old A40 runs between the A40 at Puesdown and the Old Prison at Northleach and has been well used by local people as an alternative route to Northleach and to villages such as Yanworth and Compton Abdale. It was closed in 2015 as a result of a wall collapsing and the ground subsiding.

Whilst we all understand that it takes time to investigate and remedy a situation, Paul Hodgkinson believes that enough is enough and that County Council highways bosses must now act and provide a timetable for the road to be re-opened.

Support Paul’s campaign to re-open the road. Add your name and details to the petition below and help us to help out pressure on Gloucestershire County Council and Highways to re-open the old A40 as quickly as possible.
