Charities and Volunteering

Citizens Advice Enfield urgently needs volunteers to work in its shops in Palmers Green and to help build a social media profile.

The formal opening of the rebuilt Shaftesbury Hall in Bowes Park took place on Saturday 9th February. The building is owned by North London Samaritans and replaces a Victorian 'tin tabernacle' - a small chapel built predominantly of corrugated metal.

The two Citizen's Advice Bureau shops in Palmers Green - north and south of the North Circular - are both looking for more volunteers.
