Post Office celebrates first anniversary with free prize draw

The Spar store and Post Office in Roadway Road, Patchway.

Patchway Post Office at the Spar convenience store in Rodway Road is celebrating its first anniversary with a fabulous free prize draw for customers.

All customers visiting Patchway Post Office during week commencing Monday 28th May will be given a complimentary raffle ticket to win a Spar hamper, packed with groceries and goodies including a set of Royal Mail’s stunning Diamond Jubilee stamps, worth £100.

Neil Jenkins Post Office Ltd spokesman said:

“We are delighted to join Spar in celebrating Patchway Post Office’s first anniversary. When we appointed Spar as a new partner, it provided us with the opportunity to restore vital Post Office services to the local community after the original branch closed in 2009. Customers can renew car tax and Passports using our ‘check and send service’ and buy foreign currency on demand.”

Stewart Waldron, spokesperson of A F Blakemore that owns Spar said:

“Customers benefit from a great selection of fresh foods and groceries in the convenience store alongside the full range of Post Office products and services including automated banking services; bill and budget payment schemes, Post Office card accounts and postal orders as well as all the usual postage services for letters and packages. Customers can save up for their TV licence using PayPoint.”

He added:

“Business is thriving with lots of loyal customers. We always look forward to welcoming new shoppers at Rodway Road, where they are guaranteed a warm welcome and the chance to win a fabulous prize.”

The Rodway Road post office was officially opened by local MP Jack Lopresti on Friday 13th May 2011 (photo below).
