Mobile Post Office to be housed in Allerdale Borough Council car park

11 January 2018

Cockermouth councillor and Leader of AllerdaleBorough Council has helped save the town's residents from traveling to use the Post Office during its refurbishment works. 

The Post Office, located in the Co-op on Station Street, is due to be closed from the evening of January 21 for about a fortnight. Customers faced a shuttle bus service to another office in the area if they wanted to use Post Office services. 

However, after being contacted by Cllr Smith, the Post Office is now also able to provide a mobile office each Wednesday during the refurbishment from 10am-1pm. This will be located in AllerdaleBorough Council's Fairfield car park, close to the Council's old customer service centre.  

Cllr Smith said: "I'm really pleased that the Post Office has agreed to do this and thank them for their efforts. The Post Office provides a crucial service to many people, including business leaders who just won't have the time to use the shuttle bus. Whilst I appreciate the refurbishment work needs to be done, I hope this service means that the disruption for people can be kept to a minimum. Also whilst it is only one day I do hope if an opportunity arises, they are able to extend the mobile service to more days a week."   

The shuttle bus service to the Post Office and Co-op in Cleator Moor will also be available on Mondays and Fridays at 10am
