Post Office Ltd is proposing to replace a Fittleworth mobile Post Office service to brand new Fittleworth Community Shop, School Lane, Fittleworth, RH20 1JB.
Currently the village has Post Office services provided by the mobile service operated by Grayshott Post Office. It operates from the village hall car park on a part-time basis. Following a new building being built near the Village Hall, the local community will now be running a community shop and café and they want to operate a full time Post Office.
It would be one of our local-style main branches where Post Office services are delivered from an open-plan till alongside the retail counter.
The mobile service is currently operated on a Monday and Thursday from 8.30 – 10.30am. The proposed new opening hours at the community shop are Monday to Friday: 8.30 – 5.30pm; Saturday: 9am – 1pm.
This would mean an extra 44 hours of Post Office service a week.
The Post Office is inviting customers and interested parties to give their views on the plan. Post Office Ltd welcomes feedback on any issues customers would like considered. The consultation will close on 15 November. Customers can share their views during the consultation online at postofficeviews.co.uk with the branch code 700908.
Submissions can also be made via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, by post to Freepost YOUR COMMENTS, or by telephone 03452 66 01 15 or Textphone 03457 22 33 55.
