Cancelled flights or lost luggage? Know your rights - Citizens Advice

Abingdon Council News - Wed, 08/14/2019 - 11:17

Please see below that we have received from our local CAB Oxfordshire South and Vale Citizens Advice Bureau:

Cancelled flights or lost luggage? Know your rights - Citizens Advice

Airports and air travel have always caused difficulties and stress, but in the present age - with tight security and overcrowded terminal buildings - travellers have to deal with situations more fraught than ever before. To add to their problems flights are often delayed or cancelled, and suitcases vanish or turn up with items missing or damaged.

Abingdon Information on the move

Abingdon Council News - Mon, 07/22/2019 - 14:16

Abingdon Information has been hosted in a number of locations over the years and for the last year has been located in the first floor Sessions Hall at the County Hall Museum.  This has meant that the office was inaccessible to anyone who has difficulty with stairs.  Consequently the information centre will move back to the Guildhall shortly, being located on the ground floor room at the Town Council’s Roysse Court offices.
