Leaflet amnesty to raise awareness of doorstep traders launched
Mon, 14 Oct 2019

As part of the Yorkshire and The Humber Doorstep Crime Awareness Week, the trading standards team is raising awareness of traders who prey on vulnerable customers. As part of this, the team is launching a leaflet amnesty.

From Monday, 14 to Friday, 18 October the team would like to know if uninvited doorstep traders have been offering gardening, roofing or home improvement services in the last 6-8 weeks, or if leaflets have been handed out offering similar.

Collection boxes for these leaflets have been placed at 15 council locations (Bridlington Town Hall, Goole Council Offices, Beverley County Hall and all customer service centres), and council staff are advised to add the first part of their post code to the leaflet before putting it in the collection box.

Alternatively, information can be passed on through the Citizens Advice Consumer helpline on 03454 04 05 06.
