New in store: Bird Food and Feeders for your garden

We’ve recently introduced a range of wild bird food and feeders in store, helping our customers choose the right combination to attract a wider range of birds into their gardens. Pop in store to shop our range, where Gary and Kay will also be on hand to offer advice about making the right selection.

The future of Galmpton Post Office

A word from our Postmaster, Gary Deare.

Please see my recently produced article on the future of Galmpton Post Office, in which I look back on the history of the Post Office and the difficulties faced today.

I would welcome feedback on the article, either in person at the Post Office, or by email.

There are many ways to support Galmpton Post Office. For example, ask me how your building and contents insurance can help sustain the Post Office in Galmpton.

Galmpton winners for Post Office Money savings draw

We were thrilled to hear just before Christmas that not one but two of our lovely customers were the lucky recipients of £2,500 cash and a £100 One4all Gift Card in the Post Office Money monthly savings draw.

The Post Office Money monthly savings draw invites new and existing customers to deposit at least £1,000 into their Post Office Money savings account between 17 September 2018 and 31 March 2019, to be in with the chance of winning £10,000 plus 100s of other prizes.

As a result of two of our customers winning prizes, Post Office Money also sent us a hamper (seen here with Kay) which we will be raffling off in the near future. To be in with a chance of winning, keep an eye out in store or on our website.

We’ve gone green instore!

Along with our commitment to reduce plastic waste in store, we are now running the store on ‘green’ electricity. Having recently renewed our energy plan, our electricity is now supplied by renewable sources including solar power and wind farms.
