Update  May 18

Here’s what the postmaster says “29th May 2019 is last working day – that’s what we are told. Letter posted by Mr Roberts says 30th Apr ( which was 2 weeks ago) and …. it says 5th June.”

According to the Post Office, Gatley’s current postmaster Ch Jamil Ahmed has resigned and our Post Office will close on June 5th 2019.

Ch Jamil Ahmed says that he hasn’t resigned but is being forced to close because “Unfortunately we came to deadlock with PO about renovation and some remuneration issues.”.

We’ll update as soon as we know more.
