Gordon Henderson, Member of Parliament for Sittingbourne and Sheppey, has welcomed the news that post office services are finally being restored in Bredgar.
The village Post Office was closed in February following a burglary and had been set to re-open on Saturday (23rd May) but encountered some broadband connection problems. These have now been resolved and the Post Office will be re-opening from 9.15am tomorrow (Wednesday 27th May).
Mr Henderson told SFM News "I am very pleased this much-needed service is re-opening. The damage caused by the raid was extensive and I congratulate everyone involved in getting the work done so quickly. Village Post Offices lie at the heart of their communities and we have seen too many of them close over the years. Having the Post Office open again in Bredgar is great news for the village and I would encourage villagers and visitors to use it. I wish postmaster Teresa Hudson well when she re-opens tomorrow."
