The sale of Swinton Post Office on Chorley Road for use as a Convenience Store (I believe), begs the question as to where the entrance to Dr Koukash's proposed development might now be located?

See Steve Wilds comments on previous thread re post office

"I don't think we need to read too much into the proposed post office useage just yet. These measures might prove to be interim, and its long-term future might be something else entirely"

Keep the faith.

I don't mind stealing bread from the mouths of decadence.

"Be mindful of the prayers you send,
Pray hard but pray with care,
For the tears that you are crying now,
Are just your answered prayers"

Maybe the convenience store will be accommodated on the site of the stadium with post office included?

Dr Koukash is proposing to develop a site in Swinton town centre which would include amongst other things a new ground for the Lions.  The access to the site was assumed to be via the site of the old post office. It's all still in the lap of the gods but we Swinton fans live in hope of a return to Swinton.

It doesn’t appear to be on the M.E.N./Advertiser website as yet but it’s in today’s papers (M.E.N. page 18 – S.A. page 32) about the Swinton Post Office affair.

 

The story (SA) reads as follows.

 

Have your say over post office changes

 

The Post Office is hosting a public forum about the proposed relocation of Swinton Post Office and new opening hours.

The branch is set to move into the Food and Tipple convenience shop, 15 metres from its current location in Chorley Road, as part of a major modernisation programme.

The forum, providing information about the changes, will be held at Swinton Royal British Legion from 4.30pm to 8.30pm today, as part of a six-week public consultation.

The new opening hours will be from 8am to 7pm Monday to Saturday and 10am to 4pm on Sundays – 26 and a half hours more than are currently offered each week.

People can have their say about the changes by emailing comments@postoffice.co.uk, by calling 0845 722 3344 or by textphone on 0845 722 3355.

You can also write to – Freepost, Your Comments, or take part in an online questionnaire at postofficeviews.co.uk.

Customers are asked to quote branch code 055422.
