MP's praise for "unique partnership" over new Citizens Advice
Epping Forest MP Eleanor Laing has congratulated the Theydon Trust and the Citizens Advice Bureau following the official opening of the CAB's new offices in Epping.
The offices, in Hemnall Street, were officially opened by The Princess Royal on Wednesday afternoon.
Epping Forest MP Eleanor Laing said: "I would like to congratulate the Theydon Trust, and in particular the efforts of Michael Chapman and John Batchelor, and the Citizens Advice Bureau for coming together in such a unique partnership to provide such wonderful facilities for the CAB in Epping.
"The Citizens Advice Bureau provides a valuable service to the local community not just in Epping but throughout Epping Forest and it is great that they have been able to move into such a marvellous new base."
Mrs Laing added: "I have watched our local CABs developing over the years and I was very pleased to have the opportunity to speak to some of the staff and volunteers who put so much time and effort into helping other people. They do a brilliant job.
"The Princess’s visit is a good way of saying thank you to them from the whole community.”
