As from Dec 9th a Post Office Outreach Counter will be operated at Furness Vale Community Centre on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 1.30 – 4.30 offering full Post Office services (except On Line Lottery and Bureau de Change).
There is disabled access to the building from the car park and disabled facilities within the building. During the Post Office opening hours a small shop and cafe will be available for the convenience of clients and the general public.
Thanks are extended to the Post Office for their negotiations, mainly through Mr Steve White, to bring this service into Furness Vale after the closure of the old Post Office, it will be managed by Chapel en le Frith Postmaster Mr Tim Boothman. A Consultation document is available at the Community Centre, The Soldier Dick and the Crossings to enable public to comment on the provision of the service.
The Community Centre Committee encourage residents of Furness Vale and neighbouring villages to use this facility and see it progress from strength to strength in the heart of the village. Volunteers interested in helping with the running of the shop and the cafe are needed and they are welcomed to get in touch. Contact Frances Footitt on 01663 747440 or Susanne Lomas on 01663 744764.
