“Sutton Voice was set up to deliver benefit to the community and I can’t think of a better way than giving maximum exposure to this excellent initiative which seeks to ensure all of our residents are offerd some protection from rogue traders,” said founder Roger Mills.

“The website has just celebrated more than 1,000,000 page views for its second year and I am sure we can offer both those who commit to the scheme and those who may use the scheme greater benefit.

Cllr Nick Emmerson, Lead Councillor of Trading Standards at Sutton Council, said:

“Rogue traders are bad news, which is why the council is protecting its residents through the Safer Sutton Trader Scheme. People should always look at the list on the council’s website when considering employing a tradesperson.

“This list has been thoroughly vetted by Trading Standards and offers a range of professional tradespeople in the borough who are neither bogus builders nor unscrupulous opportunists.”
