Pendle’s MP Andrew Stephenson has welcomed progress towards the re-opening of the post office in Barrowford.
Barrowford’s post office temporarily closed in February.
The Post Office has confirmed they have appointed a new agent to re-open a branch in the town and are 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.”
