70 years of advice

This month the Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) celebrates its 70th birthday.  I for one didn't realise they had been around for so long - first opening in 1939 after the outbreak of the Second World War.  Starting as wartime emergency service, the Citzens Advice service now offer advice on anything from debt and benefits to consumer issues and relationships.
