Nantwich Mayor marks CAB’s anniversary

CAB Anniversary

Nantwich Mayor Christine Farrall was amongst the area’s civic leaders who joined Cheshire East Citizens Advice Bureau and guest speaker Fiona Bruce MP, at their AGM to celebrate 75 years of service in the area.  

Citizens Advice Bureaux (CAB) first appeared in 1939, when over 200 emergency centres were established throughout the UK and were all governed by a Central Committee in London. 

They also dealt with rather more light-hearted problems including a gentleman who had lost his false teeth, a struggling Argyll house-hunter claiming she was descended from the King of Argyll and a lady who wrote to see what could be done about her flock of rather loud geese.
