Move to stop cold callers in Alford

Share this article

A MOVE to protect people from unwanted callers is being extended to Alford.

No cold calling zones have been set up in Windmill Close, Stanley Avenue and Kennedy Avenue. This means clear signage will be erected warning unwanted cold callers that residents are not interested in buying at the door.

The scheme is funded by Lincolnshire Trading Standards and has already been successfully used in other areas of the county.

Each zone has its own co-ordinator and all residents will be handed special information packs about the initiative.

Free security and crime prevention advice is available by contacting your local crime prevention officer on 101 or via the Neighbourhood Policing Team.
