in bid to save Highbridge Post Office by finding new operator
MP James Heappey is pushing forward the search for a new operator
to run the towns Post Office, following the current postmaster's
decision to sell the business.
Post Office is currently working with the postmaster to help find
a buyer but is also looking at other businesses in the town which
may be able to operate the Post Office services.
Heappey told Burnham-On-Sea.com on Tuesday: "The Post Office
provides are vital service within Highbridge and so it is sad to
see the service threatened because the current Postmaster does not
wish to continue."
know that Post Office Ltd have been looking at a number of alternative
sites as well as working with the existing operator to see whether
a buyer can be found for the current business."
Post Office counters can go anywhere Ive seen them
in pubs, cafes and supermarkets but could just as easily go into
hardware shops, a bakery or even the local community centre."
hope that somebody in the town will be keen to take this opportunity."
interested in running Highbridge Post Office should contact Post
Office Ltd directly or email Mr Heappey at email@example.com
and he will put them in touch with the appropriate Post Office officials.
