Rogue Traders

Posted by Tracey on August 6, 2010 at 3:55 PM Comments comments (0)

The Ramsey Neighbourhood Team wanted to highlight a recent case of rogue trading in the county. The scam involved a number of leaflets being posted through doors purporting to be from a children's charity called Unwanted Clothing, SOS Support Limited. The leaflets asked for donations to the charity which were to be collected by volunteers later in the week. One resident became suspicious and contacted the Police. Enquiries were made with a similarly named company based in Cambridge who confirmed that they had not distributed leaflets in the area and that this was indeed one of a number of similar scams reported throughout the country. This follows a recent case reported to the Police by Trading Standards in which persons have been knocking on doors stating that they are collecting for the Deaf Society. Enquiries have been made with Deaf UK who have informed the Police that they do not use door to door canvassers.


Enquiries are now ongoing to identify the people responsible for both of these scams.


Historically, elderly and vulnerable persons in the community have fallen victim to this type of crime. Please look out for your neighbours and if you are unsure of anything posted through your door or want to report any type of suspicious activity, contact the Cambridgeshire Constabulary for advice on 0345 456 456 4.

Rights of Way

Posted by Tracey on August 6, 2010 at 6:14 AM Comments comments (0)

There has been a significant increase in the number of walkers straying from the designated Public Footpaths within the parish. The footpaths are well signposted despite persistant vandalism of the signs. Many signs are made and maintained by landowners and are there for the interests of the public.

A right of way is a path that anyone has a legal right to use on foot and sometimes using other modes of transport:

Public Footpaths are open to walkers only

Public Bridleways are open to walkers, horse-riders and cyclists

Restricted Byways are open to all non-motorised users: walkers, horse-riders, cyclists and horse-drawn vehicles

Dogs need to kept on leads if requested by landowners as the Parish has areas which are home to rare ground nesting bird species (RSPB category RED ~species of high conservation concern) which dogs caneasily damage and disturb.

The public are asked to keep to footpaths for their own safety as the Parish has many working farms with  agricultural vehicles as well as a golf course and paintballing business which could endanger straying walkers.A person who strays from a right of way, or uses it other than for passing or repassing commits trespass against the landowner. Trespass is a civil matter- A landowner can use 'reasonable force' to compel a trespasser to leave. 

I will upload a map detailing rights of way as soon as possible.
