Michael Moore MP opened Selkirk’s new post office at Scottish Borders Housing Association (SBHA) on Monday. He’s pictured with SBHA chairman Ray Licence and chief executive Julia Molloy.
The ‘Post Office Local’ is one of a new breed of branches sited in shops and businesses, to replace the thousands closed to stem the Post Office’s losses – including the town’s Station Road Post Office. “We need to modernise and adapt to remain effective,” the Post Office’s Connie Hewitt said.
The first customer, SBHA’s chief executive Julia Molloy, said the profits would be reinvested in tenant services. Mr Moore pledged to keep campaigning to retain and expand local post offices.
