Opened 5 Jan 2022

Results updated 16 Feb 2022

Following the local public engagement, the letter below confirms our final plans for the Johnstone Mobile Service.



We are delighted to let you know that following the closures of of Fenwick, Annbank, Sorn, Chapelton and Inverkip Post Offices, we are restoring Post Office services to these locations with the introduction of an permanent Mobile service from the week commencing Monday 14 February 2022.

Additionally, we will be providing temporary Mobile service to local communities of Bonnyton, Newmilns, Darvel, Eaglesham, Wemyss Bay, Houston, Old Kilpatrick and Lochwinnoch, after temporary closures of Post Offices at those locations, whilst we continue to seek permanent solutions. This temporary Mobile service will also start from the week commencing Monday 14 February 2022.

We’ve been working hard to identify a solution to restore services locally.  A Mobile service, which is a travelling Post Office aboard a specifically designed vehicle that brings Post Office services and retail products to communities without relying on fixed premises, is a tried and tested way of maintaining service to smaller communities.

We are therefore pleased to inform you that the postmaster from Johnstone Post Office is willing to run the Mobile service, which presents the best possible solution to restore Post Office services to the above communities.

Further details of all new services are provided in letter below.

Why your views matter

We would like you to tell us what you think about the suitability of the new Mobile service locations at Fenwick, Annbank, Sorn, Chapelton and Inverkip
