Bury Post Office
We have been in touch with Tracy who advised us that she is not a member of the CWU and sub-offices run by sub-postmasters do not belong to this union so will not be striking. Consequently, Bury Post Office will be open as normal on Friday 26th August (13.15 to 15.15hrs).
Please note that Bury Post Office will be closed on Friday 2nd September as Tracy will be away on holiday. She will be back with us as normal on Friday 9th September.
