THE Information and Advice Service at Aveley Youth and Community Centre is running a free drop-in surgery for housing queries.

It will be held every Wednesday from 1pm to 3pm and there will be no need to book.

Each week a trained adviser will be available to help with general and specialist housing advice, information on homelessness and help to mediate problems within families and offer other advice on housing, benefits and debt.

The centre, in Aveley High Street, is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 3pm and has information on a range of matters.
