Temporary Branch Closure – Bracklesham Post Office

Dear Sir/Madam,

Bracklesham Bay Post Office
Bracklesham Lane, Bracklesham Bay, Chichester, PO20 8HP
Branch Temporary Closure

I am writing to inform you that, regrettably, following the resignation of the Postmaster and
the withdrawal of the premises for Post Office use, the above branch will be closing
temporarily on Wednesday 29 November 2017 at 18:30.

The provision of a Post Office service to our customers in the local community is important
to us, and we will continue to work hard to restore services in the area as soon as possible.
We would welcome any applications from potential retail partners interested in running
Bracklesham Bay Post Office on our behalf. If you know anyone who is interested please
give them our Agency Recruitment team contact telephone number: 0845 601 6260. My
colleagues in this team will be pleased to provide the specific details about the vacancy at
Bracklesham Bay Post Office.

If you have any questions you would like to raise about this matter, please write to me via
the National Consultation Team at the address shown below. Please note that your
comments will not be kept confidential unless you expressly ask us do so by clearly marking
them “In Confidence”.

Any future changes to service provision would be handled in line with our Code of Practice
which sets out how we communicate and explain changes to the Post Office network. You
can find more information about the Code at the end of this letter. Other people in your
organisation may have an interest in this issue so please let them know about it.

I would like to apologise for the inconvenience the temporary closure may cause. We hope
that our customers will continue to use the Post Office and full details of alternative Post
Office services in the area are shown at the end of this letter.

I will write to you again once I have any news about our plans for future service provision.
Yours faithfully
Rebecca Morris
