I AM delighted the first 'no cold calling zone' has been launched in Weston. Such initiatives will help the police sector inspector Yan Georgiou in his aim of making the people of Weston feel safe and be safe. Uninvited salesmen and potential conmen make one worry on the doorstep of one's own home. That should not happen.If we want to buy anything we can always call a reputable supplier and make an appointment. Responsible salesmen carry identification and are not interested in selling things their customers do not want. If something needs mending or one needs to have some work done, the last person one wants is some stranger hoping to make a quick profit and disappear without offering a guarantee for the work. Even worse if someone vulnerable is charged an exorbitant amount for something they did not even need. Banning cold calling means this will be done by those skilled to do them and goods provided by those who set up in business in our town to provide us with something that will be guaranteed to be what we want. The cold callers will just have to go elsewhere and will hopefully find more and more places threatening them with a prosecution for trespass. Our homes should indeed be our castles.CLLR MIKE KELLAWAY-MARRIOTTCentral Ward, Weston Town Council
