A scheme to encourage people to find reputable traders has welcomed its 300th member.

The milestone member was part of Essex Arboriculture Limited’s Buying With Confidence scheme.

Essex County Council’s Trading Standards team said it was a good way to protect residents against rogue traders.

Cllr Roger Walters, cabinet member for Trading Standards, said: “We are keen to support local businesses that offer a good service at a reasonable price. By joining the scheme, businesses have to go through a strict audit process to ensure they are trading fairly and legally.”
