The Green Post Office


I wanted to update residents on upcoming changes to the Post Office on Kings Norton Green.I have received this letter from the Post Office Ltd, which sets out details of how the branch is to be modernise in 2015 – including with  longer opening hours and new products and services.Baalams Wood & KN Post Office Octobber 2008 021

The refurbishment will mean that the branch is closed from Tuesday 6 January at 5.30pm, and will open again on 26 January 2014. You will find details about the opening hours and alternative branches in the enclosed letter -and if you have questions about changes there are contact details there too.

On Small Business Saturday last weekend I was talking to the sub-post master about we successfully fought off closure nearly seven years ago. It’s a credit to everyone who was involved in that campaign that we were able to secure the future of the Post Office and seven years – and now it’s on the verge of expansion for the New Year.
