Darnall Post Office Wins Best Agency Branch Award for 2012
Darnall Post Office, which is run by Darnall Forum, has won a prestigious sales award from the Post Office Network. Darnall Post Office was declared the winner for 2012 in the Best Agency Branch category at an award ceremony held at the prestigious Hilton Hotel in London's Park Lane.
The post office in Darnall only reopened in August 2010, with financial help from local councillors and the Key Fund Yorkshire. The post office in Darnall had been closed for almost a year prior to this before it reopened.
Neil Bishop, the subpostmaster for Darnall Post Office, said: 'We're delighted to have won this major award. It's a recognition of the tremendous work done by our staff and the warm welcome they give to our customers.'
Manager Gillian Jackson, who attended the award ceremony with her colleague Donna Coleman, said: 'It was really exciting. We were shaking when we went up to collect the award.'
Chair of the Forum Sylvia Hamilton said, 'We still need more local people to come and make use of our award winning services if we're to ensure that there is always going to be a post office in Darnall. At least customers are assured of a really high standard of service.'
