The celebration took place at the St Andrew’s Social Centre BRANCH with free tea, coffee and cake for customers.

Postmaster Gary O’Connor, a local artist and writer, has developed his retail idea over the past year. Recent changes have involved adding more shelving to provide retail space to stock the work of talented local artists and authors.

Mr O’Connor, said he organised a community day to reflect on the fact that a Post Office was at the heart of a community and could support the community further by stocking items produced locally.
