Message from the Mayor #8
Shout out for the Post Office and its staff.
During the last few months of lockdown, the Post Office has remained a beacon of normality, hugely appreciated by the Town. Housed in a beautiful period building and overlooking the historic market place, managed by generations of the same family, it is one of our treasures for sure.
The Post Master, Nigel MacCormack and his experience of lockdown
The Post Office has remained open through the whole of lockdown,
Customers have been extremely grateful that we have remained open so all online business sales can be processed and customers are able to deposit cash and cheques into their bank accounts. The volume of mail has been extremely high and so everyday has seemed like Christmas!
Shout out to our Customers
We would like to thank all our customers who have been so understanding as regards social distancing which has meant we have been able to stay healthy and remain open.
Shout out to Jackie Fitzpatrick
A staff member who normally only works part time has worked every day including Saturday mornings since lockdown and enabled us to keep the business going and we are extremely grateful to her.
We are pleased to say we now have our one-way system in place to enable flow around the shop to allow customers to explore our many gifts, cards and handmade chocolates.
We have with the patience of customers and the support of staff delivered a service which will continue responding to changes in national policy on reopening so keep a watch for when we change our opening times.
Our current opening times are
Monday to Friday 9:00am – 1:00pm and 2:00pm – 4:00pm and
Saturday 9:00am – 12:00pm.
My, and our Town’s warmest thank you to Nigel and his staff for providing not only the service throughout, but also all the additional items, cards , jewellery, beautiful toiletries, soft toys and of course those lovely chocolates - all of which I am sure made possible, a small present or well wishes in a card for those separated from family & friends.
