Evesham Editorial 8th Aug, 2020   0

AN EVESHAM post office was honoured for its service during the Coronavirus pandemic after being named a finalist at a regional awards ceremony.

Evesham Post Office was highlighted in the Better for Customers category at the Post Office’s ‘We’re Stronger Together’ regional awards for the Northern Ireland and Wales region.

The awards recognise the efforts made by postmasters across the region to keep branches open during the Covid-19 pandemic and serving their local community.

The great work by Postmaster Jon Bumphrey was highlighted by Post Office chief executive Nick Read.

Postmasters who operate branches in the Northern Ireland and Wales region had the opportunity to share their experience of running their branch during the pandemic and hear directly about the Post Office’s future growth strategy.

Area manager Sarah Harris, said: “Evesham was nominated for the Better for Customers award for maintaining extremely high levels of customer service during this challenging time. Postmaster Jon maintained his opening hours, even with only half his staff.

“Postmaster Jon’s attention to detail to ensure customers get the best possible service, and stay safe during the pandemic, never goes unnoticed,” she added.
