Results updated 8 Apr 2021

Following local public engagement, the letter below confirms our final plans for the branch.



We are delighted to let you know that following the temporary closure of Wilpshire Post Office, we are restoring Post Office services to the community with the introduction of a permanent Hosted Outreach service.

This new Post Office service will operate from within the Salesbury Memorial Hall, Ribchester Road, Clayton Le Dale, Blackburn, BB1 9HT and is scheduled to commence on Monday 22 March 2021, where it will be known as Salesbury Post Office.

We will also be restoring Post Office services to the communities in Trawden, Catterall and Hoddlesden with the introduction of a temporary Hosted Outreach service, whilst we continue to seek a permanent solution. These services will commence from Monday 22 March 2021.

We are therefore pleased to inform you that the Postmaster from Burscough Bridge Post Office currently operates an Outreach service in the area and is willing to extend the service to the above communities.

We will continue to review and monitor services on an on-going basis, and should customer usage increase significantly, consideration would be given to adjusting service times accordingly

We are keen to restore services to this community as soon as possible so we are now progressing with these plans. However, we would welcome suggestions about specific aspects of the change such as access arrangements and the internal layout.

What happens next

Thank you for your support in restoring the Post Office service in the local area.
