Jobs bus visit off
The planned visit of the Jobcentre Plus mobile office to March next Friday has been cancelled. It will return to the town on October 1 and 15.
The bus has been making regular visits to March, Whittlesey and Chatteris over the past three months to reach out to communities that don’t have easy access to a Jobcentre Plus office.
It is scheduled to revisit Whittlesey on September 16 and October 14 and 28, and Chatteris on September 23 and October 7 and 21.
