Post Office News

April 4, 2019

Royal mail will put their prices up on Monday 25th March: standard 1st will be 70p, 2nd class 61p.

They have broken their price cap set by OFCOM, and they will be fined, which will go to “action for children”. Other prices jump too: Europe rate will be £1.35 & £1.55 for the rest of the world (under 20g).

The confusion over Brexit means that passports need to be at least 6 months before expiry, for travellers abroad, and if you are intending to drive abroad, you will need an international driving licence. The nearest location to get one of these is Didcot post office.

We will be closing for the Easter holiday, (Good Friday, Easter Saturday & Easter Monday). Pensions and allowances will be paid on the previous working day, while anyone needing emergency gas, electricity or parcel collection can ring my mobile 07825 154842.

Marvel comic superhero stamps are on sale now, and the new Birds of Prey stamps are on sale 4th April.

Duck race tickets will be available soon, still tickets available for the Honey Bee talk, Jet Fuel from Rubbish talk, BBC4 tickets, Wallingford bus tickets, Blewtube tickets, with more events being planned!

Cadbury creme eggs in stock now! We have honey, eggs and preserves on a regular basis, and cakes to raise money for one of my girly guides off on an international trip to Switzerland!

Happy Easter Love Karen and Maggie
