Saqib Bhatti, Member of Parliament for Meriden, has celebrated the return of the Kingshurst Post Office services which are set to be restored following a temporary closure in August 2020.
The Kingshurst Post Office, located in The Parade, will operate from the same location within Browns Pharmacy and offer a wide range of services.
Commenting on the news, Saqib said:
“I know the people of Kingshurst will join me in celebrating the return of this essential amenity. Before its closure in August 2020, the Kingshurst post office provided residents with a vital local hub for services.
“Many constituents contacted me about the need to reopen this post office, so I am really pleased that this vital service has been restored to the community. Alongside Solihull Council’s £34 million plans to renew Kingshurst town centre, I am keen for the area to become a hub for the local community and a post office is essential for that”.
Leader of Solihull Council, Cllr Ian Courts added:
“Solihull Council are absolutely committed to regenerating Kingshurst town centre. As part of the regeneration project, there are plans to include new homes, commercial properties and a health care centre all of which will contribute to a bustling town centre for local people.
“The post office plays a vital role in the community. As we embark on our exciting renewal programme, a post office for local people is key.”
Residents are being encouraged to get in touch if they have any questions or comments about the new service. To have your say, please contact Royal Mail’s National Consultation Team via email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
