Cold calling zone set up
People are being encouraged by police to say "no" to cold
A "cold calling control zone" is being set up in Headcorn
by the Maidstone and District Neighbourhood Watch Association.
The zone is designed to deter cold callers from knocking on
doors trying to sell products or services and encourage residents
to have the confidence to say "no" to them.
More than 100 people attended an event by Kent Police Watch
Liaison Officer Lorraine Hemphrey at Headcorn Village Hall to
tell people about it.
In the coming weeks, all Headcorn residents will receive window
stickers and a leaflet with hints and tips on how to protect
themselves. Signs will also go up promoting the scheme and
deterring ˜cold callers" from knocking on doors.
Headcorn residents interested in finding out more about
the zone can contact Lorraine Hemphrey on 01622 604395 or
