Green Light For Kirkby’s Post Office

March 18, 2013 9:38 am

Ashfield Councillors have welcomed news that Kirkby-in-Ashfield’s main Post Office is to relocate to new, permanent premises later this spring.

The new Post Office will be sited within the units formerly occupied by the Mark Jarvis Betting Shop and Ashfield Homes Limited at 1 and 3 Lowmoor Road and is expected to open its doors to customers early in May. This move will not only fill these two units but will bring the town centre to virtual full occupation as it currently enjoys a void rate well below the national average.

Cllr. John Knight, Leader of the Council, commented that he was delighted that the Post Office had finally acquired a permanent home within the town centre.  He commented: “This site will provide an ideal location for the town’s Post Office in a prominent and accessible position.  Post Offices play an important role within a community and I’m delighted that negotiations to find a permanent site have come to a positive conclusion.  This represents another important step in Kirkby town centre’s regeneration journey which continues to gather momentum.”
