South Petherwin Post Office

At the request of the Post Office, members of the Parish Council met with with Mr. Colin Pound, Field Change Manager on the 10th of September. Mr. Pound announced that Sarah Hart has resigned as Postmistress with effect from the 7th of January 2015. It is standard practice when no obvious location for transfer of Post Office premises is available, for the Filed Change Manager to meet initially with the local Council. Government policy is to maintain postal services in rural communities and the Post Office is tasked to make every effort to ensure this happens. After a discussion of the impact and options available, which included input from Rev. Anne Brown, Mr. Pound arranged to meet with the Community Shop Committee to consider transfer of facilities to the shop. The Committee and the Post Office would be working  with the aim of arranging as seamless a transfer as possible. Mr. Pound said that a consultation period with the general public would be undertaken. John Whiting, Chairman of the Parish Council said “While it is sad to hear that our current post mistress has resigned, the Council is pleased that plans are in place to consider the service continuing from a location in the Community Shop.”
