rogue traders, doorstep criminals and pushy sales people have been given the cold shoulder by a new campaign.
West Yorkshire Trading Standards has joined forces with local police and the Guiseley Neighbourhood Watch to launch a Cold Calling Control Zone in the Hawkstone View area. Officers from the organisations were on hand to talk to locals, distribute stickers and leaflets and put up signs. David Lodge, Head of West Yorkshire Trading Standards, said: “Protecting the safety of the communities of West Yorkshire is important. By working with residents and our partners to enforce this zone we can ensure that cold callers get the message that they are not welcome.”
