Trafford resident to receive Trading Standards Hero Award

Arlette Taylor, a Trafford Resident and director of care company Cherished Moments, is set to receive a ‘Hero Award’ from Trading Standards.

Trafford Council’s trading standards team regularly recognise the efforts of residents who go the extra mile in helping to protect their family, friends and neighbours from rogue traders, and they will be presenting their Hero Award to Arlette at the intu Trafford Centre Tea Dance on the 7th February.

Cllr John Reilly, Executive Member for Economic Growth, Environment and Infrastructure said; “Trafford Council is extremely proud of residents like Arlette and it’s a pleasure to be able to present her with a ‘Hero Award’.
Arlette, who runs a day care centre for elderly and vulnerable people, foiled the criminal plans of some rogue traders who were targeting an elderly lady with dementia in her own home. The lady, who had been targeted, attended Cherished Moments day care three days a week, but following this unfortunate incident, the company has now offered her another two days a week attendance free of charge. It is because of Arlette’s extreme act of kindness and bravery that she is being presented with the Hero Award.”

In addition to the award from the Council, intu Trafford Centre are providing a £50 voucher for Arlette, which will be presented during the Tea Dance on the 7th February.

The tea dance will take place between 4-6.30pm with the award presentation taking place at around 5pm. All are welcome to attend and enjoy the live band and dancing, as well as helping to raise awareness of the importance of stopping rogue traders.
