TOWN councillors have praised the Citizens Advice Bureau for the support it provides to hard-up residents in Ross-on-Wye.

The town council contributes £10,000 per year for a fortnightly afternoon appointments service which operates out of the library on Cantilupe Road.

Several councillors said the CAB did magnificent work and some suggested increasing the council’s contribution to them.

Councillor Chris Bartrum said: “They do a bloody good job.”

The CAB services can only be accessed initially by phoning them and they will then make an appointment with a specialist adviser if necessary.
