Overview

We are moving the above Post Office branch to a new location - Gorsley Community Shop, Gorsley Baptist Church, Gorsley, Ross-on-Wye, HR9 7SE.

As you may be aware, following the resignation of the Postmistress, the above branch closed temporarily in August 2017. We restored Post Office services to the community of Gorsley with the introduction of a temporary Mobile service, which commenced in December 2017.

We are now in a position to relocate this service to Gorsley Community Shop, where it will change to one of our new local style branches.

Your new Post Office branch

Customers would access Post Office services in a modern, open-plan environment alongside the operator’s retail. Working with the postmaster, we’d adapt the current store layout, fixtures and fittings to accommodate the Post Office. It will be in a dedicated area of the store with an open-plan position. The full range of Post Office products and services would be available. We’d also add a low-screened, modern Post Office till at the retail counter offering most Post Office products and services over longer opening hours, so customers can access their Post Office when it’s convenient. Customer satisfaction with these style of branches stands at 96 per cent.
