Anne-Marie Trevelyan, MP for Berwick-upon-Tweed, has been in correspondence with the Post Office regarding their plans for the branch in Rothbury. Following their public consultation, the Post Office has decided to proceed with the move of the branch into Phillips Newsagents at Townfoot, Rothbury NE65 7SL, where it will be operated by a retail partner.
The Post Office was grateful to all those who took the time to comment and provide information. All the feedback they received helped them to understand the views of customers and their representatives and this was taken into account along with all other relevant factors, in making the decision.
Anne-Marie said, "I am pleased that the Post Office has decided to keep the branch in Rothbury, and that these vital local services will be retained."
