Redundancies likely at Grimsby and Cleethorpes CAB

The Grimsby and Cleethorpes Citizens Advice Bureau could lose up to seven staff in the New Year as it faces a funding gap so won't be able to help as many people in the future.

A loss in legal service commission will mean support workers won't be able to help as many people, especially those struggling with large amounts of debt.

Despite having applications for more money in the pipeline there's concerns about the knock on effect.

Our local CAB office is at 4 Town Hall Street, Grimsby, DN31 1HN. Tel 01472 252500 or 08444 111 444

    Sniff, sniff, what is that odour?

    Does paranoia smell?

    I smelt something similar once on the Lyke Wake Walk, when we came across an idiocy of UFO spotters at midnight, close to the golf balls.

    There are some weird, weird people.

    nukedragga,

    It's not easy bringing the corruption of a large organisation out in the open, especially when it possesses a highly effective 'financial weapon' it can threaten to withdraw if things aren't kept the way they like it. It doesn't help either when sham watchdogs, supposedly in place to weed out the rot, are used in reality to protect them.

    TROLL REPORT
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Readers take note………….

    The Grimsby Council Bashing Troll is very active on threads today and is using many different names – it's an obsessive compulsion he has. He has so many AKAs he could fill a telephone directory but they're always ignored.

    Play the game and award yourselves 5 points for each of his many names you spot and 10 points where you catch him responding to his own posts and 20 points if you spot him congratulating himself, because that's really weird ;-) and when he's spotted masquerading as someone else then that's a whopping 60 points . 100 POINTS IF YOU CATCH HIM TRASHING OTHER WEBSITES. So many 100 Points going at the moment aaawwwwwwwwww he's soooooooo SAD :-D

    THERE ARE LOTS OF POINTS TO BE HAD TODAY – spot the style / new name and WATCH HIM SET A COMMENT TRAILS LEADING TO ESCALATION ;-) .

    If everybody couldn't pay their council tax just like MUCK RAKER, we'd be in a fine old pile of doodoo.

    Why isn't our Labour led council funding these posts like they have in the past? They should be a top priority!

    These people provide a great service this is a disgrace, we should stop all this foreign aid, and start looking after our own. Get our brave lads out of Afghanistan, we are wasting lives and millions. Let our soldiers do a job protecting our shores within.
    If we recreated a work ethic within the country so all these people who survive on benefits and have no incentive to work can make their lives more rewarding and make a positive contribution to society we would have an even more fantastic country.
