Overview

We are pleased to let you know that we will be restoring Post Office services to the community of Staveley and Glasshouses with the introduction of a permanent Mobile Service. 

We will also be restoring Post Office services to the community of Masham, Hampsthwaite and Lofthouse with the introduction of a temporary Mobile services while we continue to seek a permanent solution. All these Mobile Services are scheduled to start week commencing Monday 23 March 2020.

Since the closure of the above services we have continued to work to identify a solution to restore services to the local community. We are therefore introducing 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 Ripon 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 these local communities.

We have also made some changes to the hours to the current Mobile Services at North Stainley, Wath, Melmerby, Baldersby, Kirkby Malzeard, Kirklington, Cundall, Helperby, Kirby Wiske, Borrowby Lower, Borrowby Upper, Kepwick and Nether Silton. These changes will start week commencing Monday 23 March 2020.

Why We Are Consulting

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