Following local public consultation, the letter below confirms our final plans for the Post Office service in Over Kellet..



We are restoring the Post Office service to the local community of Over Kellet with the introduction of a new permanent Post Office Outreach service at Over Kellet Village Hall, Church Bank, Over Kellet, Carnforth, LA6 1DT.

Why we are consulting?

The branch closed on Friday 29 October 2021, following the resignation of the postmaster and the withdrawal of the premises for Post Office use. Since the closure we have continued to work to identify a solution to restore a Post Office service and we are pleased to inform you that the postmaster at Carnforth Post Office is willing to extend the current Hosted Outreach service to also serve the local community of Over Kellet.

Our priority is to safeguard our services in the locality in the longer term. The introduction of a permanent Hosted Outreach service will enable us to maintain a Post Office service to our customers to the local community in Over Kellet.

Your new Post Office service

To restore Post Office services as quickly as possible to the local community, the new Hosted Outreach service is scheduled to open at the new premises on Tuesday 15 February 2022. 

Customers will access the Hosted Outreach Post Office service from a dedicated Post Office serving position located within the Over Kellet Village Hall. A range of Post Office products and services will be available.
