Bogus Community Nurses
We have been made aware of two incidents in the Croydon area where service users have been targeted by a man and woman posing as community nurses.
The woman has appeared first and distracted the victims, the man has then pushed his way into the home.
This kind of offence usually leads to items being stolen, so please keep items such as wallets, purses and handbags hidden and out of sight.
If you are expecting your Community Nurse and someone you do not know appears at the door, please ask for ID and tell them you need time to check it.
If you are unsure, you can call 020 8274 6195, and explain that you need to check the identification of the person who is at your door.
Finally, thanks to all who have renewed their membership, often with ‘something’ towards our projects fund (lights, baskets, poppies).
If you have not yet done so, please do drop the envelope that was with the latest copy of the magazine (well done Phil and Colin) to your Road Rep.
Their address is in the back of the magazine or on the envelope. No magazine? Let me know and we can get this fixed for you.
It may be more convenient to make a bank transfer to Addiscombe & Shirley Park Residents Association, 20-24-61 50802549
Please do remember to use your house number and road name as a reference so we can keep your reps up to date with renewals.
