"The branch had been closed since Saturday due to the resignation of the postmaster and we hope to re-open by lunchtime tomorrow.

“We understand how important a Post Office is to a community and we would like to reassure customers that we are working hard to find a permanent solution. Any retailer or small business owner interested in running the Post Office and incorporating it into their business should email”
