Plans are being made to reopen Woodplumpton Post Office at village’s Wheatsheaf pub as a Hosted Outreach Service.

The former Post Office in Woodplumpton Road closed temporarily on July 31, 2013, due to circumstances beyond Post Office Ltd’s control, and the new proposal is to operate in the pub between 10am and 11.30am on Tuesday and Thursdays. The service will be operated by the subpostmaster from Cottam Post Office.

Post Office field change advisor Mick Renshaw, said: “We understand how important having a Post Office is to residents in Woodplumpton and we are confident the Hosted Outreach service will meet the needs of the local community and secure services for the future.”

A six-week consultation is being held for customers.
