Opened 11 May 2021

Results updated 3 Jun 2021

We recently advised that the above branch would be closing temporarily on Monday 28 June 2021 and reopening with the introduction of a permanent Mobile service. I am now pleased to inform you that the branch will remain open and will continue to operate as it currently does. 

As a result of this good news we are not seeking any further feedback an alternative service.



We are writing to inform you that, regrettably, following the resignation of the postmaster and the withdrawal of the premises for Post Office use, the above branch will be closing temporarily on Monday 28 June 2021 at 16:00. 

However, we are pleased to be able to introduce a permanent 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 Scotby Post Office is willing to offer Post Office services to the local community. The Mobile Service will be operated from: Great Clifton, Workington, CA14 1TY, and will offer a wide range of Post Office products and services. The service is scheduled to commence on Thursday 15 July 2021 at 14:00. Further details of the service are provided below.

During transfer of the branch customers requiring Post Office facilities may use any convenient Post Office service. Details of two alternatives Post Office branches are provided below for your convenience:

  • Bridgefoot SAS Post Office, 18 Fell View, Bridgefoot, Workington, CA14 1YL
  • Workington Post Office, 12 Murray Road, Workington, CA14 2AD

What happens next

Thank you for your support in restoring the Post Office service in Great Clifton.
