CITIZENS Advice is celebrating its 80th birthday today (Wednesday).

The team in Winsford is trying to trace volunteers who used to help the charity when it was based at the Brunner Guildhall for many years.

A heritage weekend is being held at the historic building on September 14 and 15 and special displays will be mounted.

Mark Halford, recruitment and support officer at Winsford Citizens Advice, said: "We would love to hear from any of our old volunteers or staff who used to volunteer or work for us when were in the Brunner Guildhall.

"I'd like them to get in touch with me so that I can use their experiences and stories in the display to reflect the history and heritage of an important era in the use of the building."

A picture of staff and volunteers taken at the Brunner Guildhall in 2001 includes Roy Noon, Anu Chandra, Paul Nicholls, Jason Bishop, former mayor of Vale Royal Cllr Nicky Harris, Jean Ollier and Kathy Dozer.

Cllr Harris was presenting a long service award to Freda Robson, one of the first volunteers at the Winsford CAB office when it moved to the Brunner Guildhall.

Mr Nicholls is currently chief executive of Citizens Advice Cheshire West and Mr Bishop is assistant chief executive.

Pat Goulding and Jean Ollier were volunteers.
