Following the closure of the Station Road Post Office after just over 55 years of service to the community, Gina Sargeant and Kath Brown have asked us to pass on their thanks to the many friends who have shown their appreciation in recent weeks. They are pictured above with some of the many gifts they have received.
We would like to thank everyone for the gifts, plants, flowers, cards, letters and kind words bestowed on us at the Post Office closure.
Both of us were so surprised at your kindness and generosity.
We know that we will miss you all, and thank you for so many happy memories.
Our good wishes go to Alex, Jackie and their staff. We hope their working experience will be as much fun as ours has been.
Thank you once again.
Gina and Kath
Amongst the many visitors was Derek Hodge, Chairman of the Parish Council who presented both Gina and Kath with flowers. He also presented Gina with a framed Letter of Commendation and Thanks on behalf of the Parish. (See picture right.)
In the letter the Parish Council expressed their gratitude for all the work that Gina has done to supply this vital service to the parishioners of Hodnet for over thirty years. It went on to say that the Station Road Post Office has always been an essential hub for the community with a warm, efficient and welcoming atmosphere created by both Gina and Kath.
