A Fleetwood small business has picked up the first of a new award designed to highlight good practice.
Clean Living has been named Blackpool Council’s first ever Safe and Secure Trader of the Month, a spin-off from the scheme which offers people living in the area with a list of trusted traders to help prevent Fylde coast residents falling into the hands of cowboys or conmen.
The Safe and Secure Directory of trusted traders has been developed in partnership with Care and Repair, Age UK Blackpool and the policeCoun Gillian Campbell
Danny Henshaw, a sole trader who runs the Fleetwood-based operation, specialises in carpet and upholstery cleaning.
Clean Living, which has its headquarters on Laidley’s Walk, has been on Blackpool Council’s Safe and Secure Directory since June 2014 and was selected as the first winner of the award which is designed to honour local businesses who provide a great service to their customers.
A delighted Daniel said: “I am really pleased my work is appreciated by my customers and very grateful for all the kind comments, as a sole trader customer satisfaction and recommendation is really important to me.”
Coun Gillian Campbell, Blackpool Council’s cabinet member for public safety and enforcement, said: “I’d like to offer my congratulations to Clean Living on winning the first award.
“The Safe and Secure Directory of trusted traders has been developed in partnership with Care and Repair, Age UK Blackpool and the police to provide consumers with confidence when employing tradesmen for jobs in the home.”
She added that companies and individuals listed in the directory had been thoroughly vetted and must adhere to a code of practice.
