Great Holland: Plans to re-open village post office in retail shop
10:00am Friday 4th October 2013 in News
A VILLAGE post office could be set to re-open as part of a new retail store.
Great Holland Post Office, in Main Road, has been closed since February 18 following the illness of the subpostmaster running the service.
But the Post Office is now looking to re-open a service for residents in the village.
Rather than having a dedicated post office building, it is looking to work with a retail outlet.
A business would run from the current building and a post office service would run from within the new shop.
Post Office is currently refurbishing the Great Holland building to allow a business to move in.
Town councillor Robert Bucke said: “There are builders in there doing work at the moment and I’m delighted to see some activity at last.
“We’re not sure how long it is going to be yet but this is certainly encouraging news.”
