Beware of bo­gus call­ers

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FAMILY ANNOUNCEMENTS -

PEO­PLE liv­ing in Ash­ford and sur­round­ing vil­lages are urged to look out for bo­gus tree sur­geons who claim to work for the coun­cil. Res­i­dents in Wye, South Ash­ford and nearby vil­lages have been tar­geted by the peo­ple, who tell them they have a prob­lem tree. Many house­hold­ers have been taken in as the call­ers claim to work for Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil, and as a re­sult, have seen their prize trees de­stroyed by shoddy work­man­ship. Tree of­fi­cer Mark Sy­monds said: “No rep­utable lo­cal tree sur­geon would call unan­nounced in the hope of find­ing work, it’s just not the way th­ese pro­fes­sion­als need to work.” Any­one who be­comes sus­pi­cious should call the com­mu­nity safety unit at Ash­ford po­lice sta­tion on 01233 660747.
