A temporary Mobile Post Office is being introduced to Goring to maintain service whilst we
continue to look for a permanent solution.
The current branch at 14 High Street, Goring, Reading, RG8 9AT, is due to close on
Thursday 9 June at 5pm due to the resignation of the operator and the closure of the
McColl’s store, where the branch is based.
To maintain service, we are starting a temporary Mobile service on Monday 13 June.
It will operate from the carpark of Westholme Stores (Londis), 24/26 Wallingford Road,
Goring, RG8 0BG every Monday and Thursday from 8 – 10am.
This will be provided by the Postmaster for Warborough, which already serves many rural
communities.
A Mobile Post Office is a tried and tested way to serve smaller communities.
Ian Johnson, Network Provision Lead, said: “We are delighted to be maintaining Post Office
service to Goring with the Mobile service. These will be temporary services whilst we
continue to look for permanent solutions.”
