Croydon Trading Standards will be testing electric blankets and small electrical appliances in Croydon, on 9th and 10th October 2014.
This year’s event will take place on Thursday 9th October 2014, at the Selsdon Centre for the Retired, located within Sainsbury's, SELSDON, 130 Addington Road, South Croydon and on Friday 10th October 2014 at the Gillet Road, Sheltered Development, Thornton Heath.
Both sessions will run from 9.30am until 4.30pm, please contact Trading Standards, to book an appointment slot or a collection time.
Once again the Council will be offering a home collection service for residents, who are elderly or housebound and might find it difficult to attend a session.
