No Cold Calling Zone for the village

Norfolk County Council Trading Standards has agreed to survey residents to see if there is support for the whole village to be designated a No Cold Calling Zone.

Some of you have already contacted the Parish Council to indicate your support for this. NCC is now writing to those residents who have not yet said whether or not they support the scheme.

We need a high level of support for this to go ahead so please do complete the form which will be delivered through your door shortly in a brown envelope. There is a pre-paid envelope enclosed for your reply.

If you don’t receive an envelope and don’t think you have already contacted the Parish Council, please either email the parish clerk, Pauline James at Paulinejames@aol.com giving your name, address and stating whether you support the scheme, or download the form below, complete it and email it to trading.standards@norfolk.gov.uk or post it to Trading Standards, Priory House, Austin Street, Kings Lynn PE30 1EB
