Horringer and Ickworth Neighbourhood Watch
A Visit from Three Street Hawkers
On the afternoon of Wednesday 31 January, three Street Hawkers arrived in Horringer with unpleasant consequences for many residents. These were doorstep callers who offered household products which are very expensive and of dubious quality. They claim to be ex-offenders and are known as the “Nottingham Knockers” although our three claimed to be from Sheffield, Manchester and Redcar. They carry ID cards (probably homemade). When householders refused to buy, they were subjected to shouting, swearing and spitting as well as other unpleasant behaviours.
The police advise that they are not part of any recognised rehabilitation scheme, householders should not deal with them, and report them to Suffolk Police on 101. Please also inform your street Co-ordinator and, if you wish, to me.
