Post Office outreach service welcomed

12 May 2009




Peter Peacock, Highlands and Islands regional Labour MSP, is welcoming moves by the Post Office to restore services to customers of the Stockinish branch, on the Isle of Harris.

The branch closed in March following the resignation of the Subpostmaster.

Mr Peacock said: "I am delighted the Post Office is introducing a Hosted Outreach service, which will run from Bays Community Centre.

"Post Offices in rural communities provide many vital services for their users and this is being recognised by the company moving to restore services."

Mr Peacock added: "This temporary solution is most welcome, and I hope a permanent solution is found in the long term."
