Barwell Parish Council first made villagers aware in a post which was shared to their official Facebook page today (25 November).

The Post Office, based inside the One Stop shop, located on 65 Moore Road, will temporarily close on 23 December at 5.30pm, as the building which houses it is set to undergo ‘extensive’ refurbishment works starting on the aforementioned date.

It is believed that it will be closed for approximately four weeks – with the post office re-opening on 20 January 2022 at 9am.

A statement was shared by the Parish Council, explaining that the safety of customers is of ‘paramount importance’ and that it would be necessary for the service to close in order for the building works to take place.

But, whilst this is closed, villagers will still be able to use one other local Post Office branch in Barwell, and another in the neighbouring village of Earl Shilton.

These are:

  • Barwell Post Office, 2 High Street, LE9 8DQ
  • Earl Shilton Post Office, 6 The Hollow, LE9 7NA
