MSP Seeks Limekilns Premises for Post Office Services

Bill Walker has reassured Limekilns residents that he will inform the Post Office if suitable premises for a restored local service become available. The Dunfermline MSP has also asked local businesses to let him know if they can offer an alternative location for the Post Office formerly based in Main Street.

Mr Walker said: “Limekilns villagers have been without a local service since October 2011, following the resignation of the subpostmaster and withdrawal of the premises for Post Office use. This vacancy is still being advertised on the Post Office website, which is www.postoffice.co.uk.

“Although a Field Change Adviser has visited Limekilns to look for a suitable local business that might be able to offer a Post Office service, so far they have been unable to locate a solution.

“I’ve been advised that the closure is temporary and that the Field Change Adviser will explore any suitable opportunities if there are significant changes in Limekilns. They did point out, however, that any restored Post Office must be sustainable for them and for the future operator.

“I think it’s important to stress that, as with any other service on our local high streets in Fife, it’s extremely important for residents to use the Post Offices and the businesses they value, to ensure these continue.

“If I become aware of any changes in Limekilns, I will contact the Post Office. In the meantime, I would encourage Limekilns businesses to advise me if they can offer suitable premises.”
