The shop will close for good at 5.30pm before services resume the following day at a new location inside Greenfield Newsagents just further down Chew Valley Road.

Until then, full post office and mail services will be available at the current Post Office, which is set to be converted into a house when it closes.

Mandy, who is stepping down as sub postmistress, said: “I have been here for 17-and-a-half years and every one of those has been absolutely fantastic.

“I want to say a big thank you to everyone for their support over that time.”

The post office services were saved from closure and re-located thanks to campaigning led by local councillors Alan Belmore, John McCann and former Mayor of Oldham Richard Knowles.

The new branch at the Newsagents will be open from 5am to 6pm, Monday to Friday, Saturday 5am -3pm and Sunday, 5am-1pm.

As part of improved accessibility measures, a handrail, bell and signage will be installed at the entrance while a portable ramp will be available for customers on request.
