Lower Broadheath village post office return is on schedule

3rd January 2019

A village post office is due to re-open early next month thanks to a group of community volunteers and the backing of West Worcestershire MP Harriett Baldwin.

Managers at the Post Office have confirmed that the volunteer group will be opening its new store together with a post office counter service in February.

The new store will be opening in a portacabin installed in the car park of the Bell pub in the village. The original village store and Post Office shut down in 2017 when the current owner retired and a community group clubbed together to raise funds from local and national sources to open a new store.

Harriett commented: “I have been working closely with the Post Office management to ensure that a post office service remains in the village and Lower Broadheath has been accessing a mobile service ever since the closure.

“I also have been in close contact with the volunteer group since it was first formed and I am so pleased that the community has pulled together to re-open the village store – together with its vital Post Office services.

“I am grateful for the efforts of every volunteer who has worked to get to this point and the many people who will donate their time and energies to making this community-run store a reality.

“I look forward to popping in as soon as it opens and I will keep in close contact with both the Post Office team and the volunteers as it welcomes customers back to Lower Broadheath.”

Richard Hall, Post Office Public Affairs Manager added: “We are delighted that Post Offices services are to be restored to the community in Lower Broadheath.

“Everyone involved should be immensely proud of the innovation and determination that has delivered the new community shop and Post Office to Lower Broadheath and the surrounding areas. “
