Barbara: I was asked by someone who lived near us on that, the estate that had Keats Close in it, if I’d train to work for CAB. Citizen’s Advice Bureau and so I did, I did a six week training thing for that. Then we had an, CAB had a small office on, in in the Bus Station. You went up the, I forgot what was below it but you went up the stairs to get into it. We did have quite a lot of customers in those days, clients I suppose. And I think the main problem then seemed to be financial almost for them. I think, I mean others had, you had somebody with- They came with different problems. But the, the most likely problem you were gonna have to try and help them sort out was finan, finance.

Peter: And it still is, I understand.
