A MESSAGE FROM HAYLEY AND ANDREW SCARBOROUGH, FRANT POST OFFICE

Is Our Post Office Closing? As this is written (in mid December) the press has been full of headlines announcing the closure of 2,500 Post Offices following the government's announcement of its funding plans. What does this mean for Frant?

The Facts as we Know Them
The government announcement included:
a) Investment of up to £1.7billion between now and 2011. This is to enable modernisation of the Post Office and the development of new products.
b) Closing 2,500 offices.
c) Replacing at least 500 with mobile or part-time services.
d) Continuing Post Office Card Accounts for pensions and benefits until 2010, and introducing a new benefits payment card in 2010 for which the Post Office will compete to run

These are only proposals which now go forward to national public consultation.

The Risk to Frant Post Office?
At the moment this is unknown. We have not been told how the offices to be closed will be selected, or when this will happen.

What can we Do?
It seems to us that there are three things we can all do to minimise the risk to our Post Office.

Hayley/Andrew We are working closely with our Post Office support team to maintain a high profile as a committed, proactive office which is keen to maximise Post Office profits.
