Tarvin Post Office- change of hours

Post Office

The Tarvin Post Office has started a consultation on changing it's hours of operation. A letter explaining the proposed changes can be found in the PO and the consultation period ends on 27th September.

The proposed changes will reduce the hours the PO opens, in particular, there will be no PO services on a Sunday but stamps will still be available from the shop counter. However the changes, if agreed, will still mean the PO is available for 57 hours per week between Monday to Saturday inclusive.
In fact they propose opening earlier and closing later including much longer opening hours for Saturday.

As community surveys have always identified the PO as the most important village service we hope that as many people as possible will take part in the consultation and express their views. The easiest way to take part is to complete an online questionnaire at www.PostOffice.co.uk. You will need to quote the PO reference number is 341614. Alternatively, you can ring the customer helpline: 03452 66 01 15.

To be clear the shop will still be open — it is just the Post Office Section that would be affected. Shop opening hours will remain as 5.00 am to 8.00 pm, Monday to Saturday and 5.00 am to 2.00 pm on Sundays

We have been told that the proposed changes has been initiated by the Post Office owners as the demand for these services on a Sunday have been monitored and is very low. This would also give some important family time to the owners. Under the current arrangements they have to be present to keep the Post Office Counter open.
