FENLANDER: Visit Fenland @ your service shops next week for advice about Council Tax Benefit

BENEFITS staff from Fenland District Council will be on hand at the four Fenland @ your service shops next week (September 17-21) to answer questions about the proposed changes to Council Tax Benefit and advise people on how they might be affected.

They will be at the shops from 10am-noon in Wisbech (Monday), March (Wednesday), Whittlesey (Thursday) and Chatteris (Friday).

The proposals are currently out for public consultation. If approved, they will come into force in April 2013.
