DOOR KNOCK WARNING

Operating in Totton now… some very well dressed and "super polite" Sales People are knocking on doors, trying to persuade you to sign up to a book purchase scheme.

Beware…. it looks like these people are operating legally, but employing some very crafty techniques, being super friendly, giving the impression that they know your neighbours, pretending that they are interested in your children for survey purposes, finding common interests before moving towards the sale.

I have friends who were totally taken in by the smoothest of sales techniques and signed up to what is actually a very expensive commitment. Luckily, they paid by credit card and know about the 14 day period in which you can cancel the contract they get you to sign.

It's probably always a bad idea to agree to buy anything at the door. It simply encourages more other people to come around.

Firm chosen to run New Forest leisure centres set to be revealed

WERE YOU ASKED? The way democracy is supposed to work is that political parties tell you what they plan to do (in a manifesto) and if elected into office, then go about the job. As with wheelie bins and spending £millions on concrete beach huts, introducing car parking charges, the Conservatives gave no indication at…

LOVE THESE RAILINGS One of the most attractive and distinctive features of Eling that you can still find are these beautiful metal railings. Sadly, most of these have been lost with the passage of time. Usually, they are replaced by something much blander and of less heritage value. I might be alone, but I have…
