Town body names new manager to oversee changes
A vital service that provides free and independent advice has employed a new manager to take it through an exciting new period.
The Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB), which is based in Belle Vue House, Sudbury, has appointed Eve Channon as its new manager.
Mrs Channon, from Colchester, will oversee a series of improvements to the service over the coming months.
She said: “I feel it is an exciting time for Sudbury CAB, which has a wide range of services on offer and I am impressed with the excellent standards and quality of advice it provides.
“We have just launched our new website – www.sudburycab.org.uk – which provides a wealth of information and advice.
“We are also looking to take our services out to local communities following a successful trial of our outreach service last year.
“We acknowledge that, in the current economic climate, travel is expensive and it is not always convenient for clients to come and see us, so we will be visiting sites in the area to offer advice on finance, benefits and housing.”
Mrs Channon previously worked at the Colchester Institute, which was responsible for the distribution of government funding for the delivery of apprenticeships.
Sudbury CAB has an uncertain future, with Belle Vue House set to be sold by landowner Babergh District Council.
Roy Lamb, premises co-ordinator for the charity, said no decision had been taken on a potential move from the site.
There have been calls for any future plans to include office space for the CAB.
