Pedlars in Humshaugh (Originally Posted 2018)

Some villagers may have been approached by young men selling cleaning utensils in a haversack (Usually claiming they have been in prison for assault). It has happened to me. I have had two separate visits over the last few weeks. Both young men put me under pressure to buy something. The first one, a few weeks ago, harassed me and became aggressive when I would not buy something because he did not have any ID. The second one produced an ID document which I found was forged, after I called the police.

I realised, now, how ignorant I was not knowing the law on pedlars. I have therefore done a little homework. I find they must have a pedlar’s certificate from the police. (See copy below).

😔 ☹️Sadly, with little fruit on the village’s trees, no apple pressing this year, so savour every last drop of the 2020 vintage whilst stocks are still available in the shop!

“What a wonderful book, really better than I expected. I’ve just finished reading most of it in the summer house with my cup of tea.   What also caught me off guard was I felt very emotional reading it all”  Sarah
