Following on from the success of the Flintshire Connects Centres at Holywell, Flint, and Connahs Quay, Flintshire County Council is pleased to announce the opening of two further Connects Centres in Buckley and Mold. Joined by fellow County Councillors and the Mayors of both towns, Councillor Aaron Shotton, Leader of the Council officially opened the Centres on Monday 21 December. With an emphasis on first class customer service in accessible town centre locations, Flintshire Connects Mold can be found in Mold Library on the Daniel Owen Square and Flintshire Connects Buckley on the first floor of Buckley Library which is located in The Precinct. Customers are able to access information and key County Council services including housing, Streetscene, welfare benefits and advice, Blue Badges, Concessionary Travel and Council Tax. Both centres are open Monday to Friday 9.30am to 5pm and Advisors can help with enquiries relating to the above and any other Council related issues. There is a provision for IT access and also a separate area where customers can discuss their enquiries in private with an Advisor. Councillor Shotton said: The Council is committed to extending and improving customer access to council services, so despite the difficult current financial climate I am extremely proud that today we have officially opened two new Flintshire Connect Centres in Buckley and Mold, bringing access to council services closer to the people of the two Towns in a modern and welcoming environment.
