The PO have issued the following regarding the future of a PO in Kirkheaton.
“The postmaster at Kirkheaton Post Office ( St Mary’s Lane PO)has resigned. The branch was operated by an independent retailer (Michael and Lynn Whitehouse) and the premises are currently withdrawn from Post Office use. We would like to reassure customers that we are committed to maintaining Post Office services to people in Kirkheaton and we are working hard to restore services to the community as quickly as possible.
In the coming weeks we are hopeful that we will be allowed access to the premises in order to re-open with a temporary operator – timescales for this would be mid February – I will keep you updated with developments.”
