Our staff took to the streets of South Riverside (Selkirk) today to consult the local community and businesses on their proposal to open a Post Office local at our Head Office. The Station Road Post Office in Selkirk closed last October and this proposal brings back both postal and financial services to the local community.
The exercise was a huge success with local residents and businesses expressing their delight at the Post Office being brought back in to their local area. One local resident said “I think it would be good for the community and it would be handy to have it close by”.
Following this positive reception of the idea, SBHA have submitted an application to Post Office Ltd. We hope to have the new Post Office Local up and running by the end of the year. Watch this space for further updates!
