Move confirmed for Westbury-on-Trym post office
Westbury-on-Trym Post Office will be moving from the High Street to Canford News, 27 Canford Lane, BS9 3DQ after a period of local public consultation.
It will be a new-style local branch with significantly longer opening hours. Post Office services will be provided from two open-plan counters alongside the retail counter of the convenience store.
Opening hours will be Monday to Saturday: 8am – 7pm and Sunday 8.30am – 1.30pm.
This will be an extra 21 hours and 30 minutes of Post Office service a week than the existing opening hours and will include five hours open on a Sunday. The branch will also open earlier and close much later every day.
Sarah Cottrell, regional change manager, said: “In view of the of the level of feedback I revisited both locations and after careful consideration I remain confident that the layout and location of the new branch will continue to meet customer needs and deliver an excellent service, whilst securing the long-term viability of Post Office services in the local community.”
Arrangements for the move are still being finalised and further information will be provided in branch when the move dates have been agreed.
