A NEW volunteer at Citizen Advice Shropshire’s Oswestry office has urged others to get involved if they are looking for a fulfilling role in their community.

Margaret Baines, 64, who lives in Oswestry, joined the town’s Citizens Advice team after attending an open day for potential volunteers in September.

Now she has completed her training and is spending one day a week in the Oswestry office in a dual role between staffing the reception and helping clients complete benefit forms.

“I am really happy with my role here. I feel I am part of something and I’m doing something for the community I live in. If you enjoy meeting people and want to do something really fulfilling, then this is the place to come. I have already recommended it to my friends,” she said.

Margaret completed five weeks of training after attending the open day and took up her new post at the Arthur Street office earlier this year.
