Shirley Neighbourhood Watch report a recent gardening and landscaping fraud. A local resident was approached by a man delivering leaflets, saying he and his colleagues were tree surgeons and landscapers. She asked for a quote to replace decking, which she accepted as they said they could start immediately. Money was handed over for the materials. The fraudsters dismantled the decking saying they would be back to complete the job. They never returned and the Sidcup address on the leaflets proved to be that of an innocent company. Beware such transactions!

We wish you all a very happy and prosperous New Year for 2019!
