Following local public engagement, the document below confirms our final plans for the Service. 



We are really pleased to let you know that we will be restoring Post Office services to the communities of Gavinton, Gordon and Lilliesleaf with the introduction of a permanent Mobile Service. In addition to these mobile services we are going to restore services to the community of Galashiels with the introduction of a temporary Mobile Service while we continue to seek a permanent solution. These Mobile services are scheduled to start week commencing 2 September 2019.

Since the closure of the above service we have continued to work to identify a solution to restore services to the local communities. We have therefore introduced a Mobile service, which is a tried and tested way of maintaining service to smaller communities. The Mobile Service 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 that has formed part of our operational network for some years now.

 We are therefore pleased to inform you that the Postmaster from Denholm Post Office is willing to offer services to the above locations. The establishment of a Mobile service presents the best possible solution to restore Post Office services to the local communities.

 To accommodate the above Mobile services, there will be some minor changes to the current opening hours at Norham, Bowden, Clovenfords and Greenlaw. These change will commence from Tuesday 3 September 2019.


Why We Are Consulting

We would like you to tell us what you think about the suitability of the proposed new locations.
