Thurcroft S66 9DD - 627340

Closed 23 Apr 2019

Opened 12 Mar 2019

Results Updated 14 May 2019

Following local public consultation, the letter below confirms our final plans for the branch.



We are proposing to move the above Post Office branch to a new location – Spar Stores, Units 1-2, 1 Green Arbour Road, Thurcroft, Rotherham, S66 9LA. 

Why are we moving?

The current postmaster has resigned and the premises will no longer be available for Post Office. We have therefore had to identify an alternative location to continue to offer Post Office services to the local community. A new agent has been identified to operate the above Post Office.

Our priority is to safeguard Post Office services to the local community in the longer term. The relocation of Thurcroft Post Office will enable us to maintain a Post Office service to our customers in the local community.

Your new Post Office branch

Customers would access Post Office services at a low-screened, open-plan, modern serving point that’s part of the retail counter. Working with the postmaster, we’d adapt the current store layout, fixtures and fittings to accommodate the Post Office till if needed. The branch will offer a wide range of Post Office products and services over longer opening hours, so customers can access their Post Office when it’s convenient. Customer satisfaction with local style branches stands at 96 per cent, and nearly 20 per cent of local branch customers visit outside traditional opening hours.

In order to maintain Post Office services to our customers in Thurcroft, the new-look Post Office service will open at the new premises on Wednesday 8 May 2019 at 13:00 and the current Post Office branch will close on Tuesday 7 May 2019 at 17:30.


Why We Are Consulting

We’re carrying out a local public consultation and we’d like your views on the proposal. We welcome feedback and comments that can help inform our plans.

What Happens Next

Thank you for considering our proposal. We will take into account any information and feedback we receive as we finalise our plans for the new branch.
