Post Office Returns to Twice Weekly Service – Volunteers Needed

Post OfficeWith the restrictions on Covid-19 eased from 4th July, the Post Office Outreach services at The Comrades Hall will now operate on Tuesday mornings, from 10am as well as Friday mornings from next week.
There is hand sanitiser in the lobby when entering the Hall & due to the Track & Trace requirement there is a book for you to write in your name, post code & contact number.
Although no teas and coffees are being served, a volunteer for each session is required to ensure Social Distancing guidelines are in place and maintained.
This job has been done over the last few months by Jacqui Sewell with the help of village resident, Martin Burt and his wife Becky, who is now returning to work.  We thank them for the time they committed and now call out for others to please fill their shoes!
If you are available for 2 hours on a Tuesday or Friday morning, please contact Jacqui Sewell on: 01308 867145 or email:
