Walk to the wind farm

Anyone interested is invited to join the walk which will leave the Butter Cross at 2pm.

Burton CAB has the answers to your questions

Q: Why is Burton CAB so busy and why can I never get though on the phone?
A: Because lots of people want our help. Last year we advised over 5,000 people. More volunteers are always needed so that we can help even more people. We can�t always see people as quickly as we would like but we always see everyone who needs our advice as soon as we can.

Q: Could I volunteer?
A: Yes. At Burton CAB we are always looking for new people to join our team. You don�t have to have formal qualifications and many volunteers find that the CAB experience can provide a route into paid work.

New telephone number for Police

In a major change to the way Staffordshire Police can be contacted, 08453 30 20 10 will be used as the single non-emergency number with effect from 4 october 2004.

The new easy-to-remember number is intended to improve access to the force and reduce the incorrect and unnecessary use of 999 calls.
