SHOREHAM Citizens Advice Bureau staff are saying goodbye to the Pond Road premises where it has been based for 33 years.
Residents will be without the bureau’s services from Monday to Friday, while staff relocate to a temporary home at Adur Civic Centre.
The charity will open its doors in Ham Road on Monday, December 16, and remain at the civic centre while the old centre is demolished and replaced with a new, purpose-built centre linked with the Shoreham Centre.
Sarah Hyde, chief executive of central and south Sussex CAB, said: “During a time when many people are experiencing hardship, our services are needed by local people more than they ever have been.
“As such, it has not been ideal to have to offer advice from a location which unfortunately does not offer a great deal of comfort to clients – or, indeed, a pleasant environment for our volunteers and staff to work in.
“We are therefore delighted to have been offered the space in the Adur Civic Centre while our own centre is being rebuilt, and we look forward to welcoming our clients there.”
Staff and volunteers will hold a small, informal celebration at the Pond Road centre on Monday, to mark the end of an era and to look forward to the future.
