The current Bridgwater temporary Post Office situated on the site of the former Sedgemoor Splash will finally close it’s doors at 1730 on Tuesday 10th September. The long awaited NEW town centre post office will open in Eastover at 09.00 on Wednesday 11th September.
Cllr Brian Smedley, Bridgwater Westover, said, “Westovers minor loss is the town centre’s gain. It was as a result of a popular and united campaign that we convinced the Post Office to abandon their plans to relocate to Sainsbury’s supermarket and at the same time got them to redefine their attitude to the town centre and make sure the new Post Office remained here. It’s important for the regeneration of the town that both Westover and Eastover are recognised as together constituting the town centre of Bridgwater and that planners and developers should take note of this.”
The new post office will be located at 27 Eastover,Bridgwater TA65AW. Opening hours will be 9am to 5.30 monday to saturday with all day closing on Sundays. In a letter to ward councillors Field Change Advisor Matt Walls said, “The new post office is 0.6miles from the current location, the same wide range of products and services will still be available including on demand travel money, passport check and send and car tax. There will be a mixture of screened and open plan serving positions, access will be level with a wide door,a low level counter and space for a wheechair plus a hearing loop. There is a fee paying car park nearby and the local bus station within 92 metres of the new premises.”
