Sub-post office saved

Kevin Snow12th November 2008

The sub-post office at 295 Baldwins Lane, Croxley, is to be saved. The District Council was informed yesterday by the Post Office that a temporary agent has been appointed to run the business while a permanent post master is found.

The announcement, which follows work by Councillors, Council officers and residents to save the sub-post office, means that it will not now close on 14 November.

Peter Brooker, the Council's director of community and environmental services, said:

"I would like to thank residents for their support in working to keep the post office open. It's a very tough time for businesses across the country. We must support shopping parades in Three Rivers - for the sake of both shoppers and retailers."

The Council provides free parking in the main shopping areas in Three Rivers to encourage local shopping. The sub-post office is located in a building owned by Three Rivers District Council.
