It’s end of the road for STAN
4:07pm Thursday 19th September 2013 in News
PENDLE Council’s mobile information truck STAN the Van will no longer be out in the borough.
The brightly coloured vehicle has brought ‘Services To A Neighbourhood’ across Pendle since October 2010.
But council funding for STAN is now at an end.
However, councillors are keen to reassure residents that they can still get help and advice from knowledgeable Help Direct staff through drop-in events throughout Pendle.
Coun Joe Cooney, leader of Pendle Council, said: “STAN the Van has helped us reach people who perhaps faced barriers that prevented them coming into council shops or town halls for help.
“It has been something of a success story for Pendle, but we’re constantly having to look at ways in which we can save money.
“The help and advice that Help Direct have provided on board STAN will continue to be available in Pendle through regular drop-in events across the borough.”
