Apparently shutting down in the near future.

I wonder where the post office counter will be reallocated to? , if indeed it is.🤔

Too many laws...
Too few examples...

Not surprising but sure it will move on to another existing shop in the village. Was it not be located up the Market Place before the current location?

would this be the post office with 2 counters both open early when it’s quiet, but when it gets very busy around lunchtime for obvious reasons, they close one down because it’s lunchtime? It must be a massive surprise to them that they are busy between 12pm to 2pm everyday, so that they aren’t able to provide effective cover over the most busy time of the day. I’ve been there with about 8 people behind me, and they close one counter because it’s lunchtime. Useless. That’s my Monday rant. Shame if McColls closes though.  The rest in there do a good job.

Good news re. McColls it just attracts a load of yobs anyway as they serve underage cigarettes & alcohol.

McColls is definately a major eye sore with that awful vinyl covering of the windows

As for the Post Office, to me, the organisation is stuck in the past especially when it comes to the price of parcels etc.

I popped in an hour ago and mentioned I’d heard it was closing. The happy manager (yes him) said it had been “bought out”. So there is obviously a new business moving in rather than it being just a loss of a retail space. Let’s see.
