On Friday 8th August Philip Davies MP officially opened the new Post Office counter in Cottingley. The post office has now combined with the Village Superstore, 1-3 The Parade, Cottingley, just across from its previous site.
The counter will now be open from 6am to 9pm, Monday to Saturday and 6.30am to 9pm on Sundays, a move that is welcomed by many constituents.
Philip said about the event, “The launch was a brilliant success, and I would like to thank Mr and Mrs Alam for their great hospitality on the day. From the attendance at the launch, it is clear to see how essential the post office is to the community, and I am sure this move is vital to ensuring a post office counter remains in Cottingley”.
