Pendle’s MP Andrew Stephenson has welcomed progress towards the re-opening of the post office in Barrowford.
Barrowford’s post office had temporarily closed in February this year leaving residents having to use the one in Nelson.
However, the Post Office has confirmed that they have appointed a new agent to re-open a branch in the town and are now negotiating a lease.
Mr Stephenson said: “Ever since the closure of the old branch, I have been pushing for a new one to open as quickly as possible. I welcome this development as it takes Barrowford a step closer to having its post office back.
“We are still waiting on a firm date for the new branch to open and I am continuing to stress to the Post Office how important it is for Barrowford residents to get the new branch soon.”
