Haworth post office hope after meeting

First published in News

A parish council chairman said he was encouraged by a meeting to discuss ways of retaining postal services in Haworth.

Councillor John Huxley, chairman of Haworth, Cross Roads and Stanbury Parish Council, along with fellow councillor Nikki Carroll, met a representative of Post Office Ltd.

The company has confirmed that the post office in Main Street may need to relocate once its current sub-postmaster stands down. Councillors have expressed fears that the village could be left without a post office if an alternative premises cannot be found.

Haworth used to have two post offices, but the branch in Mill Hey closed down in August 2011.

Coun Huxley said: “The meeting was encouraging, though nothing definite came out of it.”
