The Postmistress of Groombridge Post Office on Station Road, Groombridge, is retiring in

September 2020 after many years of serving our parish.

With her retirement the Post Office will close unless the Parish Council steps in.

We conducted a survey to see whether the Post Office was required in the Parish. 

98.9% of responders said
YES they would support Withyham Parish Council in its efforts to secure the future of Groombridge Post Office.

94.8% of responders from the Parish said 
YES they would support their council tax being used to secure and staff the post office. 

The full results of the consultation are available here.

Comments showed that many of our residents (including our local businesses, the self-employed, those working from home and the elderly) rely on Groombridge Post Office with its easy access and parking.

They also value the accessibility of the other shops and services around the hub of the post office.
