says he is extremely disappointed with the decision to close Beverley’s Crown Post Office.

Mr Stuart had joined others in campaigning to keep the postal service at the office in Register Square. The MP also met with bosses of the postal service handing them a petition signed by residents.

However, following a public consultation, Post Office bosses broke the news that Beverley will be closed later this year.

Speaking to Mr Stuart said;

“After a long cross-party campaign in which the community, councillors and I have come together to fight against the closure of Beverley Crown Post Office. I am extremely disappointed that our Post Office will be franchised to the WH Smith store on .”

“From the beginning, I’ve made my views clear. The Crown Post Office has been a community hub, and I find it difficult to believe that the quality of service will be sustained in the new facility.”

“However, the most important factor now is that the staff at the Crown Post Office are supported with regards to options. I have been assured by officials that this is the case.”

Franchised Post Office Will Offer Additional Benefits

The Postal bosses insist they gave careful consideration ahead of making the decision. They also thanked residents who participated in their consultation.

While news of the relocation to WH Smith may be disappointing there are some benefits.

When the new branch in WH Smith opens on 5 September it will offer extended opening times, including Sunday while it will open earlier too.

They also say that the franchising of the service is key to ensuring towns like Beverley continue to have access to postal services.

Beverley Crown Post Office will close its doors for the final time on 4 September. Until then it will be business as usual.
