Message from the Mayor - re Post Office Limited

I have today (28 September) spoken to the Post Office Public Affairs Manager and can now update you on the following. The premises where the post office is located in Carterton, as you are aware, has recently been sold to Asda, but I have been assured Post Office Limited are committed to maintaining a post office service in Carterton and are working with Asda with a view to retaining the post office service in its current location.  If there are any changes proposed to the post office branches in their network, Post Office Limited follow a code of practice. This would include writing to local stakeholders and informing their customers about their proposals for the branch. I have also been assured that CTC will be contacted as soon as a decision has been taken. I will come back to you as soon as we have any more information.

From the Mayor

I know you will all be as proud as I am to read the following, and I quote:

Carterton is ranked as the 11th best place in England and Wales to raise a family.  Now you know for sure you live in one of the best places in England.

Faringdon, also in Oxfordshire, was ranked 3rd for the provision of pre and preparatory schools.
