Following the unannounced closure of Summerhill Post Office over two weeks ago, the branch re-opened on 27th June 2016. Post Office Ltd has now put in place interim arrangements to ensure the facility can provide a service until its longer term future is known.
Local councillor Steve Delaney, who has been in constant touch with the Post Office throughout the closure, received a call from them yesterday, advising of the interim arrangements.
In discussions with Post Office last week, Steve said, “There is a duty incumbent on Post Office Ltd to maintain a service”, and asked for interim arrangements to be put in place as soon as possible, adding that, following the earlier closure of Rousay Drive Post Office, “it is totally unacceptable to leave an entire community without a service”.
He concluded, “I’m delighted to see the busy branch at Summerhill re-opened and would urge everyone to spread the word so that customers can once again make use of this facility”.
