The deal follows the Government’s other measures to protect Post Office services including additional funding, new local and national contracts, a successful piloting scheme to transform many local post offices and improvements in the services offered.
“I am delighted that a new deal had been signed between Royal Mail and the Post Office that will protect Post Office services in Crawley. Across the country Post Offices are also benefitting from additional funding, new contracts and a variety of schemes to improve the service offered to customers.
“Locally I campaigned to overturn Labour’s cuts to our Post Offices, which saw them close over 6,500 in a decade across the UK. The Government’s announcement means that our towns’ Post Offices are now secure for the future, guaranteeing this valuable service for local residents.”
