The Post Office has today (Wednesday, January 29) announced the reopening of the branch in Bath Street, which is part of the Spar store.

A spokeswoman for the company said: "We are pleased to announce that Leamington Spa Post Office has re-opened this morning after roofing repair work was carried out.

"We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused by the temporary closure caused by the leaking roof."

And the spokeswoman provided a brief update on the company's search for a new premises for the branch in the town.

She said: "We also have two interested retailers who have applied to operate Leamington Spa Post Office on a permanent basis. We will soon be considering both applications and we will then announce our proposal.”

The branch has had a troubled existence over the past year having closed several times due to ongoing issues with the premises.

Leamington MP Matt Western launched a campaign to have the branch reopened in December last year and townspeople have also appealed for the former Post Office site in Priory Terrace to be put back into use.
