Cold callers in Uttlesford

May 26, 2010

We have had a number of reports from people who have been visited by our door knocking friends selling dusters etc.  One report suggested that the sellers claimed to be from the “Keep Britain Working Campaign”, but when the householder called the organisation, they reported that they had nobody working in the area.

You may yourself feel comfortable to refuse to buy from these boys – who have often been described to us as “pushy”, but please consider your elderly neighbours who may feel intimidated by being called upon.   If we all resolve to keep our doors closed to doorstep salesmen, it should discourage them from attempting to sell in our neighbourhood in future.

We have a stock of “No Cold Callers” door stickers if anybody would like some to give to their neighbours.  The more houses display these stickers, the less attractive your street will become to salesmen. Please email to request these.
