St John’s Post Office to remain open until 31st December 2019

Sadly St Johns Post Office counter is at risk. Jointly as MHKs, we have had meetings with the Post Office and German Commissioners and we are pleased it will now stay open from 9am till 12pm Monday, Wednesday and Friday starting in August and continuing till 31 December.

Tynwald will debate the future of the Post Office in October which will set the direction of travel. We are hopeful that this will include retaining sub Post Office counters as they are a valuable community asset.
