I would like to apologise for the inconvenience the temporary closure has caused. we will continue to work to find a solution that will provide a Post Office service to the community.
I understand that you have met Richard Hall, Public Affairs Manager, to discuss your concerns regarding the service provision in Audlem. Please be assured that Richard will keep in touch with you to inform you of any significant developments.

Hopefully the contact details in the letter may be of use to Audlem Parish Council, local businesses and anyone else that can bring pressure to get this issue resolved. The letter uses the word 'temporary' three times and also 'reinstate' but pressure will always help so it doesn't slip off Post Office Ltd's radar.
The longer the post office is closed, the more potential customers will move to other services. Let's hope coordinated pressure will produce some results soon. If not, it will be all the more difficult to run a viable operation.
