"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"

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?
how does this effect Swinton Lions RLFC ?

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.
