Royal visit to Harlow

Citizens Advice Harlow had the privilege of hosting Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal on Friday 11th September 2020. The event shone a light on the incredible work of the charity within the Harlow community.

Her Royal Highness who has been the Patron of Citizens Advice since 1990 was welcomed in the photograph here by HTS Managing Director, John Phillips and Robert Halfon MP.

Last year HTS carried out a number of repair improvements at the Citizens Advice Bureau, including re-carpeting the reception area, replacing missing ceiling tiles and redecorating the entire ex-bank.

Steve Ward HTS Operations Director coordinated these works and continues to liaise with the CAB to help with anything they may need support with.

Steve told me “we assist as and when the CAB need us, whether it be for major repair work or with technical knowledge we are always happy to help”

Some of the more recent work that HTS carried out was converting 4 of their rooms into 2 offices so that the CAB staff are now able to conduct covid safe face to face interviews, HTS also put the company in touch with a local cleaning company to get their offices deep cleaned so they could comply with covid standards and keep the organisation open following government guidance.

HTS enjoy their working relationship with the CAB, as they do with many local organisations around the town.
