The Information Centre in Wokingham will close on Monday to move to an alternative location within the town hall.
The centre allows people to browse a variety of information including travel, places of interest and walks around the borough.
The doors will be closed until Friday, November 23, for the centre to be moved and is expected to reopen during Wokingham Winter Carnival on Sunday, November 25.
The refurbished information centre within the town hall, in Market Place, aims to offer a better service and extended opening hours on Saturdays from 10am to 3pm, thanks to the Wokingham Society.
The centre will remain open between 10am and 2pm on weekdays.
Following feedback, payments can now be made either online or with a credit or debit card.
Town mayor Councillor Peter Lucey said: “We are delighted to be updating our facilities and services to our residents. We have listened to feedback and requests and are confident that the new arrangements will offer a much improved environment and better meet everyone’s needs. We are also very pleased to be working with The Wokingham Society to extend the opening hours.”
Wokingham Town Council is now discussing the refurbishment of the existing Information Centre space and intends to restore its Victorian features.
