Old Street Post Office Closes
Paul & Nolene Twist have run the Post Office in Old Street for 18 years. This year, as part of national updates to the Post Office, we were told that it was to shut, and a new Post Office to open in Sean's News. On September 1st 2016 the new PO opened. In addition, in spite of Paul & Nolene's offer to the Royal Mail to keep the sorting office in Upton, that has now closed and all our post is now sorted in Worcester. Apparently the policy of the Royal Mail is to paint redundant letter boxes black. [September 2nd, the post box has been painted black. Picture below.]
Thank you to Paul and Nolene for the friendly, helpful service they have carried out for Upton upon Severn, and good luck for the future.
