Sub-post­mas­ter wanted to run Ken­ning­ton branch

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Opinion -

FEARS over the fu­ture of ser­vices in Ken­ning­ton have been dis­missed by Post Of­fice chiefs.

When the branch in Faver­sham Road sud­denly closed in Au­gust res­i­dents were con­cerned it may never re­open.

But in a state­ment this week Post Of­fice Ltd called for any­one in­ter­ested in run­ning the ser­vice to ap­ply ur­gently.

It said it had to be closed tem­po­rar­ily due to the res­ig­na­tion of the pre­vi­ous sub-post­mas­ter.

A Post Of­fice spokesman said: “We un­der­stand that the peo­ple of Ken­ning­ton will be con­cerned about the fu­ture of ser­vices in their area.

“This pro­vi­sion in the lo­cal com­mu­nity is im­por­tant to us and we will con­tinue to work hard to re­store a fa­cil­ity as soon as pos­si­ble. Un­for­tu­nately our ef­forts have so far failed.”

They have apol­o­gised for the in­con­ve­nience caused to cus­tomers and hope any­one in­ter­ested ap­plies as soon as pos­si­ble.

Applications should be made to Agency Re­cruit­ment, Freep­ost NWW 1675A, Sal­ford, Manch­ester M59JB.
