Temporary Post Office services returning to Rossett while “permanent solution” is sought

Post Office services are set to return to Rossett this spring with the introduction of a temporary Hosted Outreach Post Office.

The village has been without a Post Office since the closure of the Spar, which had provided the service, on Station Road in 2016.

Now the Post Office have confirmed that a temporary service will operate from the Presbyterian Church, Station Road, Rossett, LL12 0HE every Friday 10:30am to 12:30pm from April 6th.

A spokesperson for the Post Office says the outreach service will offer a wide range of Post Office products and services while the Post Office continue to seek a permanent solution for the area.

Post Office Network Operations Manager, Carol Williams: “We understand how important having a Post Office service is to residents in Rossett and we are confident this Hosted Outreach service will meet their needs while we continue to seek a permanent solution.”

The news has been welcomed by Wrexham MP Ian Lucas, who has called on the Post Office to outline more details about their plans for the service in the Rossett area.

Mr Lucas said: “It is welcome news that a Post Office service is returning to Rossett – it will be the first since the closure of the Spar store in the village in October.

“I am also pleased to hear that the Post Office have recognised that they need to look for a more permanent base in the village. I have written to them asking for more detail on their current plans, and making clear my view that a permanent base would be the most sustainable solution.

“If anyone else has any views on the proposal, I would be happy to hear them – and to pass them on to the Post Office so we can secure better services for Rossett.”
