Community / Ulsta Post Office to temporarily close

THE POST Office branch at Ulsta in Yell will temporarily close following the resignation of the postmaster.

The branch will shut on 31 March at 1pm.

Posters will be displayed to inform customers and a period of consultation will now be undertaken to find a solution.

Post Office services in Yell will continue at Cullivoe, Burravoe and Aywick.

Post Office network provision lead David Duff said: “I can assure you that we will continue to work to find a solution that will provide a Post Office service to the Ulsta community.”

North Isles councillor Ryan Thomson said he will continue to have dialogue with the Post Office regarding the development.

“If you have any concerns, or suggestions, please get in touch with me, or directly with the Post Office itself,” he said.

“Yell Post Office services has already suffered in recent years, with the closure of the Mid Yell Post Office at Linkshouse, without a replacement found.

“I will continue to have dialogue with the Post Office regarding this most recent closure, and assist in finding a long-term, sustainable solution wherever I can.”
