The ribbon has been cut on a new Post Office in Lichfield.

The Wheel Lane site has replaced the former counter on Beacon Street.

Post Office Regional Network Manager for Central England, Adrian Wales, said: “We understand how important having a Post Office is to customers in the area and we are confident that this new modern branch will meet the needs of the local community and secure services for the future.”

Michael Fabricant MP was invited along to cut the ribbon on the new facility.

“This new location will have far longer opening hours extended to seven days a week from 8am to 10pm,” he said. “This is a major improvement to Post Office services in this part of Lichfield.

    All very good, a new PO. And not a squeak on Lich live about the new royal baby, not very Lichfield like is it.

    They should have moved this Post Office into the Garrick. It would have encouraged more people to go to the council’s white elephant then and they could have watched the endless troupe of tribute singers while they queued up at the counter.

    This is another example of the council not thinking constructively to the detriment of local people and local services.

    I’m also not sure it is wise to have scissors in an area where children and old people are likely to congregate, even if it was just a “one-off” to cut the red ribbon and open the new (old, just moved up the road) Post Office.

    Four reds of disapproval, I take it you are not too happy with the new PO then?

    I don’t think it’s that, is it because people don’t understand the comment about the Royal Baby and not being Lichfield like?…

    I don’t suppose those responsible for the new post office fancy clearing away the ton of building rubble left lying around. I know if it had of been me I would probably been prosecuted by now
