We now have a temporary Sub Postmaster who can have access to the branch.
For various technical reasons the branch is planned to reopen on Friday. Because this has been quite a complicated situation I would be happy for you to communicate that the branch is “planned to open on Friday 21st December” but please do allow for the fact that something may impact on this plan.
Again, I apologise for the inconvenience caused to your local constituents by this unexpected closure and for the time that you have had to take in liaising with me to gain information.
Have a good Christmas.
