Post Office News

August 28, 2020

Blewbury Post Office will continue to open mornings only, Monday to Friday 8.30am to 12 noon, although we will be closing for a few minutes at approximately 10.30am, as we have no easy access to facilities in the Village Hall. We have some quite nice Sherlock stamps, and some depicting Westminster, also Queen albums.

Royal Mail have increased their prices to the USA, and there are also price hikes for several other countries too. There are several countries that are on the ‘not available’ list, but unlikely to affect us! There are also new customs labels for non EU countries, with a barcode on. We now have Euros back in stock, and continue to accept banking for most banks, to save a trip into Abingdon, Oxford or Newbury.

We will still have workmen popping in to finish some ‘snagging’ jobs, so take care! We are still trying to work out where to put everything, and restock. Please remember that any shop sales help our little post office to stay viable?

We appreciate face coverings, we have hand sanitiser on the little shelf inside the door, and are operating on a ‘one at the counter, one in the corner by the new bookshelf’ system. Please speak clearly, as it’s very hard to understand you behind the glass screen & behind the mask! We clean everything we can with bleach and water every day at 12! So appreciate people not rushing in at 2 minutes to 12!  Love from Karen & Maggie

P.S. Please don’t flush wipes etc down the toilets, even if they say they are flushable! Several residents in the village are reporting issues with blocked drains, the culprits are these so called ‘flushable’ wipes. Thank you.
