Local MP Jo Swinson recently visited the newly opened post office in the Woodilee SPAR, and spoke to owner Zahid Farooq.
The new Post Office will be convenient for the local community, with long opening hours from Monday to Saturday until 9pm, and on Sundays until 6pm. Jo chatted to Zahid and SPAR worker Nicola Gregory about the training they had undergone to deliver postal services, and the popularity of the new post office.
“Post offices are so important, both as a local community hub, and for the services they provide. I’m so pleased that residents of Woodilee have a convenient new Post Office available.”
SPAR owner, and now postmaster, Zahid Farooq said:
“I was surprised that people still send letters! But we have several people coming in every day to send packages, and a few people who are banking with us. It’s definitely proving popular with people in Woodilee."
