Young volunteers urgently needed

Date: 18/06/2008           Category: Community Safety

Trading Standards is looking for volunteers to help them carry out test purchase exercises for the sale of alcohol to under-eighteens in Medway. They urgently need male test purchasers, who must be between 15 and 16 years old and of average height and appearance. The operations will usually run from 4pm to 10pm on weekdays during June. The test purchase scenarios are supervised by Trading Standards officers and the police to ensure safety. Everyone involved in the under-age sales operations has been CRB checked and trained. Volunteers will be offered a £10 gift voucher and suitable refreshments as a thank you for their efforts. For more information contact Gurmito Sagoo on 1684 or email gurmito.sagoo@medway.gov.uk
