Traders scheme gets regcognised

 

Residents can now buy with confidence
Buy with confidence scheme launched  

BRACKNELL’S mayor, Councillor Cliff Thompson, joined traders for the launch of the buy with confidence scheme during an opening ceremony.

Last Thursday traders who have been added to the borough council’s list of approved traders got
together with Cllr Thompson to mark their membership to the Buy with Confidence initiative.

The idea of Bracknell Forest Borough Council having a list of these traders is to give residents more confidence when shopping or inviting workmen in to their homes.

Trading standards officers have so far recruited 10 local traders to take part in Buy with Confidence, which is already successful in the south east with more than 600 members. Any trader who joins the scheme is checked for their trustworthiness and compliance with the law from customer feedback.

Rob Sexton, head of trading standards and licensing, said: “It can be very daunting inviting strangers inside your home to carry out work.“The success of Buy with Confidence elsewhere shows there is a demand from consumers for reliable and approved traders and workmen.” For more information and traders’ details or to nominate a trader to go www.buywithconfidence.gov.uk or
