I’m pleased that Barnsley Council and the Post Office have confirmed that a pop up post office service will be based in Wombwell Library from this Friday, 29th January, following the closure of the branch in Heron Foods this week.
The opening hours for the new service will be:
This is intended to be a temporary solution while the Post Office look for a permanent operator. Postal services and banking will be offered, but the majority of bill payment services will not.
While this is not a long term solution, it is positive that residents in Wombwell will still be able to access some Post Office services locally.
I will remain in touch with the Post Office as they try to find a permanent long term solution for services in Wombwell, and I’ll keep residents updated on this moving forward.
