Residents can have a say on Post Office plan
PEOPLE living in the Camel's Head area are being invited to comment on new plans for their local post office.
The Post Office is proposing to move Camel's Head Post Office from its current location at 330 Wolseley Road to a convenience store two doors away at number 334.
The idea is to "create a modern open-plan branch with much longer opening hours for customers".
Regional network manager Tony Jones said: "The proposed changes to the branch are part of a three-year investment programme, the largest in the history of the Post Office, that will see around 6,000 branches – about half the Post Office network – converting to new-style branches.

"The investment marks a commitment to no more branch closure programmes."
Post Office Local is a new concept for delivering Post Office services from an open-plan counter with Post Office products and services available alongside retail transactions during shop opening hours, allowing Post Office services to be available for longer and, it claims, offering greater convenience to customers.
Opening hours at the proposed new location will be Monday to Friday 8am-9pm, Saturday and Sunday 9am-8pm; this would offer customers an extra 41 hours a week to access Post Office products and services.
Customers will be able to carry out a wide range of Post Office services including automated banking, bill and budget payment schemes, Post Office card account, postal orders and postage inland letters and packets including Signed For and Special Delivery, inland parcels, international letters, small packets and printed papers.
The consultation will close on January 18.
