In setting its budget in 2018, the Town Council agreed to take over the town centre Post Office in order to protect the service and the staff following the closure of Piper’s News.
It is believed that the post office, which opened for business in June 2019, is the first post office in the UK to be operated by a Town Council.
Operating 51 hours of post office service a week, the modern, open-plan premises provides all the standard counter services and offers four serving positions: two full-screened and two open plan serving positions along the retail counter.
The same wide range of Post Office products and services are available as before and banking services for personal customers and small businesses are also provided.
The post office opening hours are Monday to Saturday, from 9am to 5.30pm.
“The post office is an essential component of our community, and indeed any local community. By agreeing to apply for the franchise and take over day-to-day operations of the new premises, your Town Council has ensured that our local post office is safeguarded and has a sustainable future for residents and local businesses.” Town Clerk & Postmaster, John Harrison.
