Views sought on Post Office move

THE Post Office is asking for the views of Spalding residents on its proposed move along Winsover Road – although the consultation period ends one month after the current branch will close.

A public consultation on moving the town centre branch from inside the Co-op to 7A Winsover Road runs until Tuesday, March 22.

The new branch, offering the same services, will be run by the Co-op, which is closing its food, home and coffee stores at the Winsover Centre on February 21. The branch would close and then re-open in its new location on Saturday, February 26.

A spokesman said: “Our priority is to safeguard Post Office services to the local community in the longer term. The relocation of Spalding Post Office will allow us to maintain access to Post Office services in Spalding.”

Submissions should go to Post Office Ltd, c/o National Consultation Team, PO Box 2060, Watford WD18 8ZW, by email to consultation@postoffice.co.uk, call 08457 223344 or by textphone to 08457 22 33 55.
