'The times they are a changin' at local registry offices
Changes to opening hours for customer appointments at March and Wisbech Registration Offices will be in place from Monday (3).
Ceremonies will remain as they currently are at both the March office which is located at the town library and at Wisbech which is located in Awdry House, Ramnoth Road.
A spokesman for Cambridgeshire County Council said: "The new hours offer more regular customer access over the week across Fenland and have been based on statistics from the past few years and following engagement with customers. This change, whilst a slightly smaller number of hours, is better tailored to when people use the service and provides the opportunity to better serve local demand across the two locations while making best use of Council resources."
All registration services are offered by appointment only and times for both locations will be as follows: March - Monday 1.30pm to 4pm; Tuesday 9.30am to 4pm; Wednesday 9.30am to 12.30pm; Thursday closed; Friday 9.30am to 12.30pm.
Wisbech - Monday 9am to 12pm; Tuesday closed; Wednesday 1.30pm to 4pm; Thursday closed; Friday 1.30pm to 4pm.
The new hours will be kept under review to ensure they are bringing the benefits anticipated. The quickest way to book appointments to register a birth or a death, order copy certificates, submit a ceremony booking form or find general information is to go online at www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk Alternatively customers can call 0345 045 1363.
