After 30 years serving the local community, Mick and Demi will be closing the Post Office shutters this autumn, and the Post Office will be moving from no 206, where it has offered Post Office services alongside an eclectic mix of cards and children’s gifts.
The Post Office’s plan is to move the PO services to the Cherry Hinton Mini Market, at no 108 Cherry Hinton Road. Although it would only be moving 320m down the road, it would be 320m in the wrong direction for most of us in Queen Edith’s, as many residents already have a long way to go for Post Office services since Labour closed the Wulfstan Way branch in 2003.
On the plus side, the Mini Market is open for much longer hours, seven days a week, which may be more convenient for some people, and it will have two tills.
The Post Office is carrying out a six-week public consultation to find out public views on the suitability of the new premises. There is an on line questionnaire (key in the code 072113), or you can email the Post Office: [email protected]
