POST offices in the Royston area have been spared from closure under consultation documents released today (Tuesday).

However, the offices at the Hardwicke Arms, Arrington, and Sandon Village Hall, are among those which may be replaced by outreach services.

The Post Office today announced a list of 71 post offices across Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, and South Lincolnshire which are being proposed for closure. A further 17 branches are set to be replaced by outreach services, such as mobile post offices, or part-time branches housed within existing businesses.

A public consultation period will now run for six weeks, with the final decision on closures being made at the end of this time.

Members of the public can respond to the proposals by visiting www.postoffice.co.uk/networkchange, phoning 08457 22 33 44, or by writing to:
