ADVICE surgeries for East Lothian Council tenants are on offer in Musselburgh.

The meetings are for tenants who need help with rent arrears or rent payments.

A rent income officer will be based in the Jobcentre Plus office once a week.

Tenants can drop in for a friendly chat or, if they prefer to make an appointment, can get in touch to arrange this.

People do not need to have an appointment with a Jobcentre Plus work coach to attend the rent income surgery.

The surgery is held on Wednesdays, from 10am to noon one week and 2pm to 4pm the following week.

Upcoming surgeries are: Wednesday, 2-4pm; March 6, 10am-noon; March 13, 2-4pm; March 20, 10am-noon; March 27, 2-4pm; and April 3, 10am-noon.

Jobcentre Plus is located at North House, Eskmills Park.
