Feltham Citizens' Advice Bureau opens
The Citizens’ Advice Bureau has officially opened the doors of their new home in Feltham.
Hounslow Mayor, Councillor Genevieve Hibbs, formally cut the ribbon in front of the newly located bureau next to the Feltham Library last Wednesday.
She said the work of Citizens Advice fitted well with her theme for the year – “Celebrating, Communication and Building Relationships”, which can be done very effectively by volunteering.
The Hounslow CAB Service has 65 volunteers across their three branches, including Hounslow Treaty Centre and Chiswick Town Hall.
At the annual general meeting, which followed the opening ceremony, Ramila Mistry, chairperson to the trustee board, thanked all the volunteers for their hard work and dedication.
She also appealed for people to come forward who had the experience and willingness to become trustees by contacting the bureau.
Director Parveen Sohal said everyone was delighted with the new premises in Feltham and expressed appreciation to Hounslow Council for providing the accommodation and core funding.
John Rowntree, the borough service manager, thanked the Mayor and said her theme for the year fitted well with the work of the CAB in providing advice and social policy work which often helps to prevent problems happening in the future.
The Feltham Bureau has open door sessions on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 10am to 1pm or call 0844 4994 113.
The CAB Information System is available on adviceguide.org.uk.
