Winnersh Post Office

I have been told by the Post Office that the Winnersh office “is temporarily closed for operational reasons”
They have not given me any more details or any indication of when they will be able to resume their service. I have urged them to restore it as soon as possible.

    It has probably simply joined the list of many Post Offices which are being either closed or relocated Nationwide.
    Soon you will only ever be able to do anything on line, which will mean much of the population will be left behind as modern technology gets ever more complicated, but with no instruction on how to use, or become familiar with it.
    The fact that many parts of the Country in rural areas still cannot get a decent mobile signal let alone a sensible WiFi/internet connection speed, just adds to the stupidity of the situation.

    BTW JR. Excellent hatchet job you; Boris and the ERG/IEA did on our US Ambassador. It appears Trump now has veto over our Senior Civil Service appointments. Did someone mention the UK being a “Vassal State”. If I were you, I would stay clear of any Whitehall employees at the four top Senior Civil Service grades.

      Darroch is an Brussels plant, his job was to sour US/UK relations thereby strengthening Brussels’ negotiating hand.

    Staffed by EU nationals who have gone home in disgust at England’s disrespect for hardworking migrants. Truly sad but Brexit is all about England getting smaller and nastier

    I think this entry should have been located under the “local issues” tab.

    I understand from a confidential source in the Post Office (my postie) that the PO makes more profit delivering junk mail than it does from the normal mail service. Apparently it takes precedent when loading up because junk mail is worth £2 million a day!

      That is the Royal Mail, not Post Office Counters Ltd. Yes, they do make most of their money from junk mail, were it not so stamps would be a lot more expensive.

    “is temporarily closed for operational reasons” is the same as the sign that went up in the wndow of Twyford’s Post Office.
    The rumour mill mentioned money laundering and other activities investigated by police. It reopened under new management a few months later.
    Best advice – don’t ask, just roll your eyes and use another Post Office until it reopens.

    The plan will be to close it just like the Wokingham Post Office. And nothing can be done to stop it.
