PEOPLE in Herne Bay are being warned about a rogue trader offering driveway work. He claims to be from Anglian Driveways and drives a white Peugeot Partner van sporting an Anglian Driveways sign and Anglian Home Improvements logo almost identical to the genuine company’s artwork. He has been reported in Herne Bay and Upchurch but could be working anywhere in Kent. The rogue trader claims to be a specialist in block paving, crazy paving, slabbing, tarmacking, gravelling and brickwork. He is using an 0800 phone number and a Medway number (01634). Anglian Home Improvements has confirmed that it does not employ this character. People are advised to call Anglian Home Improvements on 01603 787000 and ask for customer services if they want to check the person they are dealing with works for the firm. Anyone who sees the rogue trader should report them to KCC Trading Standards by phoning 03454 040506 on Monday to Friday from 9am-5pm or visit kent.gov.uk/tradingstandards.
