Following a strong campaign which saw hundreds of people sign the petition calling for the reopening of Mill Street Post Office we are glad to say that it has now re-opened.
See below to read the full story from the Pontypridd and Llantrisant Observer.
Just over a month after it unexpectedly closed, confirmation was received at the end of January that the Post Office on Mill Street will be re-opening in the coming week. The news has been welcomed by the community and businesses within the town, who rely on this vital service.
Following the closure, hundreds of people had signed a petition organised by the local Plaid Cymru Councillor for Pontypridd Town, Heledd Fychan.
Reacting to the news, Councillor Fychan said:
”This is very good news for Pontypridd. The closure of the Post Office was a major loss for the town, as the service is vital for both residents and businesses.
“The strength of feeling was evident, and I’m grateful to those who supported the campaign and the petition in order to demonstrate how much the service is valued.
“I would also like to thank the Pounder family, who previously ran the Post Office, for their service and dedication to the town.”
The re-opening will be on a temporary basis initially whilst the Post Office continues to explore a more permanent solution.
