I live on Juniper Way and we are often harassed by cold caller of one type or another. I have a very blunt sign on my door (as do many of my neighbours) which spells out what we don’t want. So religions, chuggers utilities can’t argue that it doesn’t apply as they aren’t selling anything. It’s no good pretending you aren’t home when the JWs call for instance. They have lists and will keep coming back until you answer the door.
Now I hate this. The signs keep some of the pests away, but they make us look so unfriendly. Some similar streets in Bradley have been designated official no cold calling zones. We applied, but were rejected as it wasn’t a high crime street. Everyone hates being confronted at the door. Why can’t we as residents decide what’s right for us. I’ve met shift workers, people with babies, those with serious illnesses/disabilities etc. It’s not just a matter of saying “NO” at the door. It’s extremely disruptive. Anyone else feel this way?
