Conservative West Lindsey District Councillor for the Nettleham Ward, Cllr. Giles McNeill, has welcomed an agreement between Lincolnshire Co-Operative and the Post Office who are preparing to expand the current counter service into a new and improved ‘main style’ branch.
The upgrade of the Nettleham Post Office is part of a programme of modernisation throughout the Post Office Network. Cllr. McNeill said:
“This is good news for Nettleham and surrounding villages. Local residents will in the future have access to more Post Office services for longer.”
Mr. Damian Mulholland, the Area Manager for the Post Office, has announced commented that:
“I’m delighted to tell you that we’ve decided, with the Lincolnshire Co-Operatives’s agreement, to change the Nettleham Post Office branch to one of our new main style branches.
“Our aim is to create a more modern and convenient retail experience for customers that will include longer opening hours.
“Nettleham Post Office will continue to offer the same products as services as before, together with a wider selection of on demand travel money. A new low level counter and hearing loop will aid accessibility.”
The post office will close for refurbishment on the evening of Thursday, 16th February and is expected to reopen at 1pm on Friday, 24th February 2017.
