The Town Council is pleased to announce that work on the fitting out of Hailsham’s new Post Office, located at 10 High Street, is due to commence soon.
Following the Town Council’s announcement that it has been successful in its bid to acquire the franchise for the town’s Post Office, work on terms of contract and other legal processes are still underway, and the fitting out and subsequent opening of the premises will be carried out soon.
“The post office is an essential component of our community, and indeed any local community,” said Town Clerk John Harrison. “By taking the opportunity to apply for the franchise and being successful in doing so, your Town Council has ensured that our local post office is safeguarded and has a sustainable future for residents and local businesses.”
“There is still a significant amount of work to be undertaken and I would encourage residents to be patient over the coming weeks as the setting up of a post office facility is not an easy process and takes time.”
“However, we will endeavour to keep the public updated on the forthcoming work on the premises at 10 High Street and provide announcements as and when new developments arise.”
A Town Council spokesperson commented: “It’s a rare thing for a town to run its own post office, but by taking this on we are ensuring an essential service every resident deserves is maintained in our town centre.”
“I would like to personally thank all the officers involved with making this happen, in particular the Town Clerk, as well as all our town councillors who supported taking on the Post Office and its responsibilities.”
