Outreach Post Office is back in Calder Vale!

  • Burscough Bridge Postmaster has restored service to Hollinfare, Calder Vale & St Michaels
  • Changes to Catterall Hosted Outreach

Post Office Ltd has restored Post Office services to the communities of Hollinfare, Calder Vale & St Michaels today (10/08) with the introduction of Hosted Outreach services.

The Postmaster from Burscough Bridge Post Office currently operates Outreach services in the area and is providing Post Office services to these three extra communities.

Hollinfare Post Office closed temporarily in November 2020 following the resignation of the Postmaster and the withdrawal of the premises for Post Office use. This is a temporary solution whilst we continue to look for a permanent solution.

The new temporary Hosted Outreach service in Hollinfare operates from within St Helen's Church, School Lane, Hollinfare, Warrington, WA3 6LL on a Friday from 10am – 2pm.

Post Office services in Calder Vale and St Michaels have also been restored. These Hosted Outreach services will operate from the same previous premises.

The times at Calder Vale Village Hall are Tuesday: 9 - 11am; Thursday: 2.30- 4.30pm.

The service will be at St Michaels Village Hall Tuesday: 2.30- 4.30pm; Thursday: 9 - 11am.

To accommodate the above Post Office services, we have made some minor changes to the current opening hours of the Hosted Outreach service at Catterall. See notes to editors for further details.

David Hunt, Post Office Network Provision Lead, said: “We are delighted to have restored Post Office service to Hollinfare, Calder Vale and St Michaels as we know how important a Post Office is to a community.”
