South La­nark­shire Coun­cil Con­sumer and Trad­ing Stan­dards hosted a net­work­ingg break­fast to mark two years’y mem­ber­shipp of the Buy With Con­fi­dence (BWC) scheme.

South La­nark­shire has led the way in pro­mot­ing le­git­i­mate business and con­sumer pro­tec­tion – with 40 busi­nesses now on its books.

The event was an op­por­tu­nity for cur­rent BWC mem­bers, as well as those con­sid­er­ing join­ing up, to get to­gether to re­ceive fur­ther support and ad­vice from the CaTS team, as well as col­leagues in business support and re­gen­er­a­tion.

Coun­cil­lor Hamish Ste­wart, chair of the com­mu­ni­tyy ser­vices com­mit­tee said: “Our aim has al­waysy been to build the scheme to be­come a ‘first stop shop’ for any­one look­ing to en­list a trader or business in South La­nark­shire.

“As any con­sumer knows, in this age of rogue traders and scams, choos­ing a re­li­able and trust­wor­thy trades­per­son or business can be a mine­field.

“Buy With Con­fi­dence is pro­vid­ing the as­sur­ance that peo­ple need to make de­ci­sions and, to me, that is a re­source that you just can’t put a price on.”
