Harringay online

Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

I have received a SMS today from Haringey Council, despite my never giving them consent to use my number for this purpose.

It also seems I can't block future contact from that account.

Has anyone got any experience with this, specifically: is there any kind of opt-out? and can I get my number removed from LBH's database?

Thanks all

Thanks for this, and I will follow up.

But - as I know I never gave LBH my number - I suspect there is another source for the information.

We will see.

Redbridge Council have the same system in place, but they offer a very clear 'Opt-Out'

LBH make no such offer:
