BOXES are being packed up at Clackmannanshire Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) today as the service is moving to a new location in Alloa.

The CAB, which helps people navigate the benefits system and much more, will be closed from today, Thursday December 7, but outreach will continue.

They will reopen at their new Glebe Hall base, now known as the Connect Centre, on Monday, December 18, once the IT and telephone infrastructure is in place.

Sharing the premises, located on Burgh Mews behind the Jobcentre off Mar Street, are Clackmannanshire Third Sector Interface who are already settling in and will be keeping their Whins Road offices next to ACE.

On Friday, December 22, the CAB will see pre-booked appointments only and will close for the holidays thereafter.

Normal service at the new location will resume on Wednesday, January 3.

Phone numbers and email addresses remain unchanged.
