After decades of service, the postmaster is retiring, and the community is coming together to raise the funds to take the Post Office over, before he leaves at the end of the year.

Within a month of going live, the new community asset fund quickly reached two-thirds of the funds required.

There's less than two weeks to go until another £26,000 is required in order to meet the minimum amount to save the community asset. More than £70,000 has been pledged in support and a further £25,000 match investment secured from Co-operatives UK.
