To continue a Post Office service to the community, a Mobile Post Office will visit the Gorsley Baptist Church (upper) car park on Wednesday 2.30-3.30pm and Friday 2.15-3.15pm. This mobile facility offers everything that can be found in a normal Post Office and will continue until the shop is in place. To accompany the Wednesday service, the Baptist Church have arranged for the Lighthouse (building adjacent to car park) to be open, with refreshments being served - a great opportunity for the community to use the Post Office and stay and have a chat over a tea or coffee.
Gorsley is not alone in the current challenges facing rural communities - we all lead busy lives, daily commuting to places of work, more frequently communicating by the phone or social media as opposed to face to face... Without knowing it our communities and the services it offers suffer and the spaces where communities come together, get to know one another and support one another are lost. The 'Hub' vision recognises that individually people want and need community and require spaces and services to enable it to happen.More details
