Pendle MP Andrew Stephenson has welcomed an update on the return of Barrowford Post Office.
Barrowford’s post office temporarily closed in February. The Post Office had planned to appoint a new agent to re-open the branch as long ago as May but a series of hitches have since caused delays.
The Post Office always delivers and I am confident the Post Office will be back in Barrowford very soonAndrew Stephenson
Mr Stephenson has said there are three interested parties applying for the business opportunity.
They have until Thursday to finalise their applications. Mr Stephenson commented: “The only people more frustrated with how long this is taking than me are Barrowford residents and the Post Office themselves. It has been a difficult process but it does look like there’s an end in sight.
“I won’t be counting any chickens just yet and urge residents to remain patient. However, the Post Office always delivers and I am confident the Post Office will be back in Barrowford very soon.”
