Steve Brine welcomes new funding to protect post offices

The Conservative government has announced £370 million to extend opening hours, cut queue times and protect rural branches.

The funding brings the total invested in the Post Office network since 2010 to £2 billion, and will secure the future of the network.

Steve Brine has welcomed this new funding, helping to protect village branches and ensure everyone continues to have access to their local branch.

Steve said: "Our local Post Office branches are at the heart of communities right across Winchester & Chandler's Ford."

"Customers and small businesses rely on their local branch every day to access a wide range of services. With this funding we are ensuring that our post offices are fit for the future.

"For the first time in decades, the Post Office network is stable and the new funding announced this week will mean it can continue to improve services for local people."
