Watch out for bogus callers - check their ID badges
Homes in Sedgemoor have been notified of bogus callers in the area by Avon and Somerset Constabulary. A company calling itself SWRP is trying to measure up for new heating systems, and is trying to pass itself off as a genuine contractor. This has mainly occurred in Highbridge, Axbridge and Cheddar.
If you are visited by any personnel you are not expecting, or who look suspicious, please call 0800 585360 or 01278 552400 for clarification before allowing them in.
Remember - A genuine tradesperson will be very happy to wait while you check their ID.
