The Post Office have today announced plans to move its Thringstone branch.
Thringstone Post Office has been located at 6 The Green for 50+ years but now, as part of a three year investment and support programme, plans have been announced to relocate to Thringstone Stores, 19-23 Loughborough Road.
As part of the move Post Office services will be offered from a till on the retail counter in the store with longer opening hours and the majority of Post Office products and services still being available at the new location.
There will now be a public consultation process, starting from 7 February and lasting until 21 March, to allow all local residents to have their say on the plans.
If all proposals go to plan it is envisaged the relocation will take place in May.
County Councillor Leon Spence said 'I would urge all local people to have their say on the proposals. I'm sure that everyone wants to see a Post Office in Thringstone for many years to come and relocating the service to Thringstone Stores will be one way of ensuring this.'
