The Post Office have unveiled plans to shake up services in Whitwick with the announcement of a proposed branch move in the village.
Under part of a major modernisation programme plans have been put in place to close the existing branch at 15 Hall Lane with services moving to the existing Mercury News shop at 4 Silver Street, Whitwick.
The Post Office have announced that along with longer opening hours and better access arrangements virtually all existing services will continue to be provided.
A formal consultation process to listen to the views of local residents has now started which runs until 27 May 2015.
County Councillor for Whitwick, Leon Spence, said 'I would urge all post office users to make their views known about the proposed changes. Many local people, particularly our elder residents, value the services that their Post Office branch offers. It is important to tell them what you think about their plans'

Should proposals be given the green light it is planned to commence services for the new branch in July or August.
