Overview

We are proposing to restore Post Office services to the communities of Walton on Trent, Blackfordby, Sheepy Magna, Bitteswell, Abbots Bromley, Denstone, Whitacre Heath, Whittington, Fillongley, Hammerwich, Mapleton, Hulland Ward, Turnditch, Acton Trussell and Branston with the introduction of a Mobile service.

Since the closure of the above services we have continued to work to identify a solution to restore services to the local communities. We are therefore planning to introduce 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 Linton Post Office is willing to offer services to the above locations. The establishment of Mobile services presents the best possible solution to restore Post Office services to these communities. 

 

 

Why We Are Consulting

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