A WEEKLY visit from a post office on wheels is being proposed to bring services back to a south Pembrokeshire community.

The village of Reynalton lost its post office last August following the resignation of the postmaster and the withdrawal of the premises for Post Office use.

Now the Post Office is putting forward the idea of a new mobile outreach service which would operate from a layby close to the village bus shelter.

The postmaster from Kilgetty would visit the community every week on a Wednesday between 11.30am and 12.30pm.

The same range of services would continue to be available, with an additional car tax services. Customers would still be able to collect benefits in cash, using the Post Office’s everyday banking services or Post Office card account.

Disabled customers would be able to access the vehicle via its electronic tailgate.

Said Gaynor Davies, field change advisor: “We understand how important having a post office is to residents in Reynalton and we are confident that this new mobile outreach service will meet the needs of the local community and secure services for the future.”

During the public consultation, Post Office Ltd welcomes feedback on any issues customers would like considered before a final decision is taken on this proposal. The consultation will close on March 22, and the service is proposed to get underway during April.

Submissions can be made during the consultation by Freepost YOUR COMMENTS to Post Office Ltd, via email to comments@postoffice.co.uk, via the customer helpline on 03457 22 33 44 or Textphone 03457 22 33 55.
