There are reports of someone in a high-viz vest claiming to be from the Groundwork Trust who is knocking on doors in the Golborne and Leigh area and asking people if they need their garden doing.
Please be aware that Groundwork does not provide a gardening maintenance service for homeowners. All Groundwork staff carry formal identification cards to prove who they are and who they work for. If anyone visits you and claims to be from Groundwork please give us a call on 01942 821 444 to check. If you believe that any caller to your home may be bogus, try and get vehicle registration details and call the Police on 101, or 999 if they are being persistent and refuse to leave.
Always question anybody who is trying to gain entry to your home that you aren’t expecting or do not recognise. Remember – if you are unsure, don’t open the door.
