Statement and update on Thornton East Post Office

Thornton East Post Office has been closed since last September when the Postmaster resigned and withdrew their premises for Post Office use.  I am informed that since the closure, the Post Office has been exploring options for restoring a Post Office service to customers in the area.  The Post Office remains confident that a Post Office Local Service will best meet the community's needs.  Post Office Locals run alongside an established local shop and are designed to create a more modern and convenient retail experience for customers in premises which are adapted to accommodate Post Office website:

I would like to encourage anyone interested in this role to consider applying.
