Last post for our village stalwart
AFTER 23 years of serving her community Honeybourne’s post mistress is bidding farewell to the role.
Trish Probert has been issuing villagers with their post and pensions since 1990 but has decided to retire to spend more time with her family.
Not only is this the end of an era for the 64- year-old, the post office will be moving from the High Street to 40 Stratford Road, where it will be located inside Premier Stores.
“It really has been a privilege to serve Honeybourne,”
said Mrs Probert, who worked with her late husband and her children. “It has been and is a family business. I have loved almost every minute. I will miss it but I have to move on. I am 64 now and my oldest daughter lives in Cyprus and I want the freedom to see her more. But I am still staying in the area so I hope to still see everybody.
“I would like to say thanks to everyone.
The important thing is Honeybourne will still have a post office.”
The post office wasclosed on Tuesday and the new venue will be opening on Monday, September 23.
Will Russell, Post Office regional network manager, said: “We are confident this new modern branch will make it easier for our customers to do business with us and also secure services for the future.”
The post office will be open Monday to Saturday from 7am until 8pm and from 8am-4pm on Sundays.
