    Lower Horsebridge, Hailsham, BN27 4DH
    Branch Temporary Closure
    I am writing to inform you that, regrettably, following the resignation of the Postmaster and the withdrawal of the premises for Post Office use the above branch will be closing temporarily on Saturday 16 September 2017 at 17:30.
    Looking after a nationwide network of Post Office services, we have a responsibility to make sure every service makes the best possible use of resources, while ensuring that customers can still access our products and services. I can assure you that we will continue to work to find a solution that will provide a Post Office service to the Horsebridge community.
    If you have any questions you would like to raise about this matter, please write to me via the Communication and Consultation Team at the address shown below. Please note that your comments will not be kept confidential unless you expressly ask us do so by clearly marking them “In Confidence”.
    Any future changes to service provision would be handled in line with our Code of Practice which sets out how we communicate and explain changes to the Post Office network. You can find more information about the Code at the end of this letter. Other people in your organisation may have an interest in this issue so please let them know about it.
    I would like to apologise for the inconvenience the temporary closure may cause. We hope that our customers will continue to use the Post Office and full details of alternative Post Office services in the area are shown at the end of this letter.
    I will write to you again once I have any news about our plans for future service provision.

    Yours faithfully

    Cheryl Sitch, Network Operations Manager
