Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Dou­glas Dickie

A coun­cil­lor has heaped praise on the out­reach ser­vice run by the Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang Cit­i­zens Ad­vice Bureau.

Coun­cil­lor Richard Tul­lett was speak­ing af­ter pay­ing a visit to the ser­vice in Whit­law­burn, which is part of his Cam­bus­lang West ward, last week.

The ser­vice, which runs in dif­fer­ent ar­eas through the two towns, is prov­ing pop­u­lar with peo­ple seek­ing ad­vice on a range of is­sues such as en­ergy costs and ben­e­fit en­quiries.

As well as Whit­law­burn, com­mu­ni­ties such as Cathkin, Fernhill, Spit­tal, Spring­hall and West­burn are all ben­e­fit­ing from the out­reach.

On his visit to the Bonus Ball Cen­tre, Coun­cil­lor Tul­lett was able to sit in and lis­ten to clients get­ting ad­vice as well as speak to out­reach work­ers to get more de­tail on the range of en­quiries they get.

He said: “Having an out­reach ser­vice in Whit­law­burn is ex­cel­lent and having spo­ken to lo­cal peo­ple I know how much it is ap­pre­ci­ated.

“It is not always pos­si­ble for peo­ple to make the jour­ney down to Cam­bus­lang Main Street where the CAB is based, so having a ser­vice on our doorstep is good news and one I know which the CAB are keen to high­light.

“I hope any­one through­out the Cam­bus­lang and Ruther­glen will give the CAB a phone and make use of this ex­cel­lent ser­vice.”

Ap­point­ments can be made phon­ing 0141 646 3191.
