Community leaders are urging people to show their support for a No Cold Calling Zone in Wyre.

Residents of School Road and Tarn Road, in Staina ward, Thornton, are being asked to back the zone to help deter cold callers and bogus traders.

Coun Julia Anderson, Staina ward councillor for Wyre, said: “If we can get the support of over half the people living there, we can set the scheme up which will send out a warning to cold callers that residents will not do business with them over the doorstep.

“We only need a few more pledges of support so if you think it’s a good idea, please show your support by returning the form that comes through your letterbox.”

Leaflets are being distributed to households in the area and residents are being asked to complete and return the attached form to show their support.

Completed forms can be posted or dropped off at 3 Turnberry Avenue, Thornton. For more information call Coun Anderson on (01253) 850717.
