Trading Standards Warnings!

Rogue traders have been knocking on doors in the Parbold area offering to carry out roofing repairs. Cold callers offering property repairs, especially roofing, is one of the most common scams, in some instances householders have paid over £20,000 for unnecessary work.
There have been reports of door to door selling of kitchenware in West Lancs and Wyre areas.  The salesman, who mentioned links with both Holland and Switzerland, spoke with an accent and stated the pots and knives were high quality and were sold to cooking schools. The cost of the products is in the region of £400. This is a scam, the kitchenware will not be worth this amount of money.  Trading Standards advice is never do business with cold callers.  Householders are receiving telephone calls from a telephone security company purporting to be approved by the Police and other emergency services.  On the call, they try to make an appointment for a sales rep to visit your home. Whilst at your home they will give you the hard sell on devices such as burglar/fire alarms.  If you receive such a call, be suspicious. Don't make an appointment. Ask them not to call again.  Many homeowners may be going away to family and friends at Christmas time and will be concerned about leaving their house empty. If you are looking to install any security measures always use local traders.

Beware of an email offering to refund you over payment of your TV licence. The email asks for bank details and is a scam.  Please also beware of an email claiming to be an invoice from Apple Music for an annual subscription of £39.99. The invoice is fake.

Parking around the School

The weather is changing and it would appear that more parents are using cars to bring their children to and from school.  The school has received a number of complaints / comments from members of the community about car parking outside the school on Bolton Lane and in the centre of the village.   Headteacher, Mr Cross, has strongly urged parents to park away from the school and walk their children the rest of the way.

Bolton-le-Sands Library

Many of you will know that a final decison has been made to close Bolton-le-Sands Library. For many years the library has offered great support to our school and the wider community with many thousands of books being enjoyed by everyone. Glenys and previous librarians have been great holding various classes and keeping our community spirit alive.  It is such a great shame that a library that is so popular and that has been expensively refurbished so recently is closing - let's hope that everyone will still have access to library services via other means in the future.

Consumer Alerts

It appears there have been several reports of doorstep callers in the South Ribble area.  A business offering cavity wall insulation and is targeting areas with a high density of older residents.  The salesman refuses to leave company details when asked.
Again a fish seller is targeting the elderly, charging excessively for their produce.
Please do not sign up to any offers or do business with doorstep callers.  Take time to think about what work you need, obtain more than one quote, and choose traders recommended by friends and family or from LCC's Safe Trader list if you do want any work carrying out.  The Safetrader scheme can help you find a trader in your area, contact 0303 333 1111 or go to
Again a fish seller is targeting the elderly, charging excessively for their produce.

Lancashire residents are reporting receiving telesales calls selling mobility aids. The calls seem to be targeting vulnerable and older consumers. Worryingly the callers are arranging appointments for sales reps to visit when the potentially vulnerable consumers are alone.  The telephone callers are very insistent and will try to establish when the consumer will be home alone and time the sales reps visit accordingly. Presumably this tactic is used to give the sales person the best chance of a sale.
One Lancashire resident in her 90's was targeted and told the caller that she did not want a visit but a salesman was sent anyway.
Please think carefully before you agree to a visit from a telesales calls, use local, known services instead.

The dangers of Morecambe Bay Sands

Visitors to these shores should be vigilant when it comes to the tides.  The rapid and fast-rising incoming tides, unpredictable quicksands and shifting channels already make the sands some of the most dangerous in the UK.  Today, it was reported to the parish council that a visitor ignored the warnings of passers by and stayed on the beach too long resulting in nearly drowning when being cut off by the tide.  Three fire engines, the air ambulance, paramedic and ambulance, coastguard, lifeboat and hovercraft were called to the scene and saved the woman and her dog but next time she might not be so lucky.  So the parish council would like to impress upon all those who visit our shores, check the tide times, watch out for quicksand, don't venture onto the sands in vehicles.

Telephone Scams

Residents have been receiving telephone calls claiming to be ringing from their local Council, working in collaboration with the NHS asking about a recent accident.  No such collaboration has been set up with your local Council – be suspicious if you receive such a call.

Residents of Lancashire have also been receiving a call stating you may be awarded a Good Citizen Grant to the value of £3000 to £5000.  The telephone number seemed to be London based.  This is a scam and will be an attempt to get bank details from you or an attempt to obtain an advanced fee.  

For regular updates on the latest scams and doorstep incidents why not visit the Trading Standards facebook page

Doorstep Incidents

Doorstep callers selling pots, pans and knives have been reported in the Preston area. Some of the products claim to be branded goods but are suspected to be counterfeit.  No cancellation rights are required to be given for goods bought on the doorstep under the value of £42.

In the end, both teams played with real skill and teamwork finishing in first place and third place overall - a fabulous effort.

Changes to Bus Services

As part of £65m savings the county council has identified in its budget for this year, it has had to make changes to how it funds bus routes.  This is one of many difficult decisions it has had to make, and still has to find more than £200m additional savings over the next five years.  This will mean changes to some bus services from 3  April.  However, 60% out of the 113 bus services in Lancashire that is currently subsidised will still run in some form or other - though there may be changes to the routes and times of these services.  £2m has been re-allocated and county has worked with bus operators to enable this to happen. Their priority is to support services that help you get to work and education.  

Those bus services no longer supported will either be run by the bus operators on a commercial basis or will stop running after 2 April.  You can find out more on their website, search for 'Bus service changes'

If you would like to express your views regarding the future of this well-loved village asset, please complete the LCC online consultation.

Bogus Callers in the Carnforth area

Detectives are urging homeowners to be vigilant following several reports of bogus callers.
Around 1pm on Monday, February 1, a man approached an address in Carnforth claiming he was owed money for work he carried out on the property’s chimney.  When the 63-year-old male homeowner asked what work had been done, the man followed him inside the property, taking £180. The offender then demanded more money, taking a further £70 from the victim’s wallet.  He left the property after being disturbed by a friend of the victim, driving away in a grey Peugeot car with another male.  The first man is described as white, of stocky build, with short black hair and spoke with an Irish accent. He was wearing a dark tweed-style jacket.  The driver of the car is believed to be in his 50s and was wearing glasses.
An earlier incident was reported to police on January 25.  A 91-year-old man told officers a male had entered his property in Slyne to discuss building work. The offender claimed repairs needed carrying out on the roof of the property, taking £400 from the victim.  He is described as white, of broad build, wearing dark clothing and spoke with an Irish accent.
Det Con Kate Foley, of Lancaster CID, said: “There have been a number of suspicious activity calls we want to warn the public about. “The callers have visited addresses stating work needs doing on the chimney stack or roof and that they have already done work to a neighbour’s house.  “We have had crimes reported in Carnforth and Slyne, but I believe that there may be other possible victims that have not yet reported it.”
Anyone with information about the Carnforth incident can contact police on 101 quoting crime reference WB1600915.
If you have details about the second report, contact police on WB1600747.
If you have been affected by crimes of this nature in recent weeks, contact police on 101.

Mis-sold PPI callers

The 'Ministry of Justice' scam seems to be around again where the consumer is offered a refund from the government for mis-sold PPI. The caller usually claims the householder is entitled to £1000's but asks for administration fee to be paid upfront. If you believe you have mis-sold PPI please contact the Financial Ombudsmen Service on 0300 123 9 123 or 0800 023 4567 or visit . They can advise on how to make a claim free of charge. If you do decide to use a claim handler, carefully consider whether to pay an upfront fee before your claim is submitted - there is no guarantee it will be successful and you could be left out of pocket.

Call Blocking

 Trading Standards are receiving calls about cold callers trying to sell a call blocking service. The caller usually suggests they are from the Telephone Preference Service or from BT.
Residents are reminded that the Telephone Preference Service provides a free opt out service enabling you to record your preference on the official register and not receive unsolicited sales or marketing calls. For further information call 0345 070 0707 or visit their website

Doorstep Incident from bogus Council agent

There have been several reports of doorstep callers saying the householder is entitled to a refund on their Council Tax due to a change in banding. The caller claims to be an agent of the council. Although the service is 'no win no fee', successful claimants are charged around a third of any money received. 
If you are concerned that you may be paying too much or your house is in the wrong Council Tax band contact your local Valuation Office Agency (VOA) on 03000 
501501 or visit where you can check you council tax band free of charge.

Bogus Traders

Bogus traders are taking advantage of the continuing bad weather to cold call householders with offers to repair roofs, and guttering.  Work is usually poorly done and/or extortionately priced. One older man was recently charged £8000 to fix ridge tiles and some guttering whilst another couple were tricked into paying an extra £4000 for repairs to their roof. One resident was charged £3,600 for repairs to flashing and some sealant round a skylight. The trader then continued to demand more money saying that extra work was needed and the householder had underpaid. The consumer was eventually pressured into paying an additional £2,300. If you do need to find a trader to do work ask friends and relatives to recommend a reputable business or try the Safe Trader Scheme.  Always remember to get two or three quotes. For more information visit about the Safe Trader Scheme visit or call 0303 333 1111.
