Results updated 20 Feb 2024

Following local public engagement, the letter below confirms our final plans for the Post Office.



We are really pleased to let you know that we will be restoring Post Office service to the community of Sheepwash with the introduction of a permanent Mobile service. The Mobile service is scheduled to commence from 11:30 on Wednesday 31 January 2024. 

Your new Post Office Service

Since the closure of the above service 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 have also made some minor changes to the hours to the current Mobile services at Clovelly, Parkham, Buckland Brewer, Langtree, Monkleigh, Shebbear, Merton and Meeth

We constantly monitor the number of customers using Post Office services and we are confident that our proposed changes will be welcomed by our customers in the local communities. 

We are also changing the current Outreach services at Beaford and Atherington. We are replacing these services and introducing a Mobile service. 

What happens next

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