OPEN FOR BUSINESS

We are still 'open for business' at the RSN with all of our staff working remotely to stay safe. We will still be delivering our services to our customers, although we're having a little think about how to best enable our usual face to face meetings and seminars.

We are looking forward to chatting with you online! If you have a query please email admin@sparse.gov.uk and we will get back to you.

Stay safe!

‘Outreach’ Post Office Services to Remote Rural Communities

Where it is difficult to deliver services to customers Post Office have come up with innovative solutions so that we operate in even the remotest parts of the UK. The Post Office provide ‘outreach’ post office services to 1,500 remote rural communities. This includes those operated out of local buildings, such as village halls or community centres, and the fleet of 59 mobile post office vans serving over 520 communities. Mobile Post Offices visit communities at a set time on set days and provide a walk-in service on wheels.

Post Office is committed to maintaining those branches which predominantly serve smaller, often remote, communities. Although these branches need extra support to sustain them, they may be the last shop in the village and the continued funding will help to support and grow them so that they can become hubs of their communities, providing vital retail, banking and Post Office services together.
