Enfield residents are being offered the chance to get advice on their finances and to learn about Direct Debit in the borough’s first ever Money Management Day.
 
Enfield Council has teamed up with Citizens Advice Bureau to offer tips on paying by Direct Debit – the easiest and safest way to make sure Council Tax, housing rent, business rates and other such payments are paid on time, safely and securely.
 
Citizens Advice and Council officers will be at Edmonton Green Library on Friday 10 November between 11am and 2pm, armed with information on keeping up with bills and how Direct Debit can help people get on top of their finances.
 
Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Finance & Efficiency, Cllr Dino Lemonides, said: “I would recommend that everyone switches to paying Council Tax by Direct Debit. Direct Debit can help you spread the costs of your payments, it is a guaranteed service and you have the right to cancel at any time. Direct Debit is also one of the safest and most reassuring ways of paying a bill.
 
“In addition, it can help to keep administration costs down, which in turn means we have more time and money for the services you really care about. We are committed to delivering effective core services and maintaining a fit for purpose Council. You can play your part in that vision too. At present, over 67,500 residents pay for Council Tax by Direct Debit. Join them and find peace of mind.”
 
Citizens Advice Enfield’s Chief Executive Officer, Jill Harrison, said: “Citizens Advice offers a free, confidential and impartial advice and can help you understand your rights. If you are in Edmonton Green, please pop in to find out more about managing on a budget and how to sort out money and debt problems.”
 
Money Management Day will take place at the recently reopened Edmonton Green Library, a state-of-the-art facility where residents can access all manner of facilities including desk-top computers and free wi-fi. Take-away information on Direct Debit will be made available and there is no need to make an appointment – just pop in. You will also get the opportunity to meet Deedee, the Enfield Direct Debit dog mascot.
