People in Bradford interested in helping to shape the future of the Post Office are being encouraged to get involved in a new Advisory Council.

Voluntary members are being sought for the council, whether they are a customer, someone already working in a Post Office branch or an interested business or charity group.

Post Office chief executive Paula Vennells said: “The Advisory Council will play an important role in reflecting a cross section of views, skills and experience from the diverse communities which make up 21st century Britain.”

The Post Office Advisory Council will be made up of between 20 to 30 members from across the country and will meet three times a year from March.

Applications close on January 31. Visit or call 0800 013 0198.
