Scissors and a smile were the order of the day when Mayor of Stevenage Sherma Batson popped along to officially open a charity’s new town centre base.

Age Concern Stevenage, which has for many years been based in a temporary building near the central library, has now moved to Swingate House opposite the bus station.

It means that the information and advice centre is now in the same building as the town’s Citizens Advice Bureau and Shopmobility teams, offering a one-stop shop for help and guidance.

The mayor congratulated chairman Ken Moore, volunteers and staff for the smooth way in which they had moved offices, and stressed how important it was that people were aware of the help that was available in the town and made use of it.

The office is open from 10am to 3pm Monday and Wednesday, and from 10am to 1pm on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. For more, call 01438 314164 or email info@ageconcernstevenage.org.uk.
