Statement regarding Post Office services in Leconfield

Leconfield Parish Council knows how important the Post Office is to residents and is very supportive of a temporary arrangement in the Village Hall, so that Post Office services can be maintained during the development of the new premises.  We have been in extensive discussions with both the Post Mistress and Post Office Ltd around options for the provision of a temporary service and we are hopeful that an agreement for an outreach service will soon be made.   We will keep residents updated as discussions move along.

Post Office Ltd has stated that the hosted outreach service will only be set up as a temporary outreach service in Leconfield and that they still want to see a fulltime service in the village restored, and the vacancy will be available for a future retailer to apply and reopen a branch. this statement can also be downloaded in the pdf format.

Useful Information

Leconfield Emergency Defibrillator.
A defibrillator for use in emergencies is sited in a secure stowage on the wall of Arthur Day's shop on Main Street. Should the need to use this equipment arise, you should go to the defibrillator and from there phone the emergency services. The operator will ask for your location  and then give you full instructions on how to open the stowage container and then how to use the defibrillator, which is straight forward.
