Farron welcomes Outreach Post Office at Chapel Stile as "positive step"

May 26, 2009 12:00 AM

News that there will now be an outreach Post Office at Chapel Stile has been described by South Lakes Tim Farron as a "positive step forward" for the community. Mr Farron welcomed the announcement but reiterated his disappointment that residents in Langdale would continue to be deprived of a fully operational Post Office.

Commenting Mr Farron said:

"After more than six months without any kind of Post Office service since the branch at Elterwater closed, this is welcome news and a positive step forward for the community.

"Despite the good news that the Langdales will now have an outreach centre, the local residents are still without a fully operational Post Office, which remains a huge blow for the village and to the communities it served. Nevertheless, the local community deserve huge credit for their work in enabling a post office service to return.

"There was a huge amount of disappointment following the decision to close Elterwater Post Office. I'm hopeful that securing a Post Office outreach will bring us one step closer toward our long term goal of returning a fully functioning Post Office to Chapel Stile and Elterwater."
