Post Office News

May 2, 2021

We are still open for our normal hours, but we are still getting lots of customers moaning about us not opening for longer. We are only paid for 30 hours a week, but volunteers are welcome to apply!

There are still lots of scams doing the rounds. Royal Mail will never send you a text or email asking for an unpaid fee; instead, they will put a card through your door. I’ve had telephone calls about suspicious activity on my national insurance number, and spam emails from banks I have no connection with – all absolute rubbish. If in any doubt, please check with your family or friends, or contact me and we’ll look at it for you. Never give your bank details out to these people, they are just after your money.

War of the Roses stamps are out on 4th May.

We’ll be closed on the bank holiday weekends, Saturday 1st /Monday 3rd, also Saturday 29th/Monday 2nd June. 

Duck race tickets are on sale, for Sunday 4th July. All ducks purchased for 2020 have been carried over to 2021! We also have lots of books and puzzles, Kitty’s hens are laying like crazy, and we have a collection box to recycle empty pill packets that would otherwise go into landfill.

With the closure of many of the banks in Didcot, and the end of the Post Office card account, most high street banks can be accessed at Blewbury post office, with cash withdrawals and cash or cheque deposits. No need to make a long journey. Happy Bank Holidays, from Karen, Maggie, Katrina and Michael
