Official Opening for New-Look Ashton in Makerfield Post Office

Pic with Branch Manager - Janet Woodcock
To celebrate launch of the new style open-plan branch, I ‘cut the ribbon’ at Ashton-in-Makerfield Post Office this morning.

I was more than happy to  officially open the Post Office.  They are to be congratulated on their work to develop this busy branch. The longer opening on Saturday afternoons will make a real difference for local residents and small business customers and I wish them continued success with the business.

Julia Harrison from the Post Office told me that the refurbisment is part of a three-year investment programme that will see around 6000 branches converting to new-style branches.

I was joined by local ward Councillor, Nigel Ash who is a regular user of the local Post Office and wants to encourage local people to make use of the services offered. 

The Post Office, now independent of Royal Mail, is the largest retail network in the UK, with over 11,500 branches. It is also one of the fastest growing financial services companies and is developing its online and telephony services.
