Village pub adds post office service after postmaster retires

Nov 13, 2005 - A country pub in England now doubles as a post office.


Diane Nicholson, who runs the Grey Horse Inn in Glazebury, near Leigh, provides a range of services in an annex at the Warrington Road pub.

The village had been without a post office since August last year, when the subpostmaster retired.

"I've lived in the village all my life and I think the villagers need it - the customers are really up for it," Nicholson said before the post office part opened. "I'm a bit apprehensive preparing for the opening, but I am really looking forward to it."

"I'm sure our customers will be delighted that we can now restore service," said Andy Wright, post office rural transer adviser.
