Post Office repeats commitments on Tenbury service


15th April 2019

West Worcestershire MP Harriett Baldwin has offered her support to local Post Office managers who are attempting to move the service to a new, permanent location in Tenbury.

The announcement follows confirmation that the current Post Office will temporarily close after Bowkett’s announced it will shut down next month.

Talks are advanced on finding a new retailer to take over the service and allow the Post Office to fulfill its obligations to keep a service in the town.

Harriett worked closely with the Post Office management in 2015 to ensure that a service was preserved following the retirement of the Sub Postmaster and she was given guarantees on the permanent future of the local service in Tenbury.

Harriett commented: “There is a legal requirement for a post office in a town the size of Tenbury and the Government subsidises the network so I look forward to hearing the Post Office’s plans to maintain the service for residents.

“Unfortunately, although the current post office service was expected to be continued under new ownership in its current location, that agreement looks to have fallen through, and Bowkett’s have now chosen to close the store down.

“I hope that this process is completed swiftly and we see a resumption of services as quickly as possible.”
