Plan to move Caythorpe Post Office services to village shop
The Post Office is proposing to move Caythorpe Post Office to a new location to create a modern open-plan local-style branch with extended opening hours.
Its proposals are now under public consultation.
Post Office local is a new concept for delivering Post Office services and the new Caythorpe branch would offer products and services from an open-plan service point integrated into the retail counter, instead of from a screened counter.
The proposed new location for the branch is Spar, 17-19 High Street, Caythorpe. This is 0.1 miles from the present Caythorpe Post Office at 58 High Street.
Should the move go ahead, the branch would open from 7am - 9pm, seven days a week. This would be 61 hours a week more than are currently offered.
The proposed move is part of major modernisation programme across the Post Office network designed to make it easier for customers to do business, through longer opening hours and modern open plan environments.
Post Office regional manager Simon Drinkwater said: “We understand how important having a Post Office is to residents in Caythorpe and we are confident that this new modern Post Office service will meet the needs of the local community and secure services for the future.”
He added: “This modernisation is part of a major investment programme, the largest in the history of the Post Office.”
The consultation will close on May 20. Submissions can be made during the consultation by Freepost YOUR COMMENTS to Post Office Ltd, via email to email@example.com, via the Customer Helpline on 03457 22 33 44 or Textphone 03457 22 33 55.
