Our Drop-In “Talk about Money” is back in September - every other Thursday morning between 10 and 12 at High Street Methodist Church, right in the centre of Harpenden High Street between Boots and WHSmiths. So many people have questions about money, particularly at the moment, and we hope this will provide an opportunity to just pop in to see how we can help. We can help people with a whole range of questions about money including budgeting, help with managing debts, reviewing eligibility for benefits and pension credits, help filling in forms and much more. So please drop in! ... See MoreSee Less
