Post Office Ltd has agreed that Greenfield Post Office will move to the Newsagents on Chew Valley Road, near to Road End, after a statutory public consultation.
This follows the successful public Campaign To Keep a Post Office in Greenfield led by Richard Knowles and Councillors Alan Belmore and John McCann.
Richard Knowles says “It has taken many months of lobbying and a site meeting in the newsagents to obtain Post Office Ltd’s agreement. The combination of our excellent newsagent (who still delivers newspapers) and the Post Office provides a viable future for both businesses. Public services are vital for the life and vitality of our village communities and I am delighted for all residents in Greenfield that our Campaign has succeeded.”
Local Liberal Democrat Councillor Alan Belmore says
“This is fantastic news for Greenfield. Everyone who lives in the village knows how important the Post Office is and what a fantastic job the retiring postmaster Mandy has done.”
The existing Post Office is being converted into a house so a new postmaster and new premises had to be found.
