On Thursday, Walton was graced with a Royal visit from Princess Anne, to open the Citizens Advice Bureau’s (CAB) new office at the Elmbridge community hub. Our CABs do a marvellous job locally, advising on a range of issues from debt to housing. We also paid tribute to their Domestic Abuse Service’s tenth anniversary.
It was fantastic that the Princess Royal made time to join us for this occasion. The CAB and the new hub are an important reminder of, and focal point for, those in real need across our community. The CAB shares the hub with various other important groups, including the police and advisers on health, disability and care issues. Elmbridge Borough Council deserve a lot of credit for making the hub a reality – and it was good to see council leader, John O’Reilly, and chief executive, Rob Moran, there too.
