We all know how much Sue and Mark have helped us all through the past few months.
Never was an award more deserved. ❤️Aldbourne Post Office wins ‘We’re Stronger Together’ award for service during Covid-19 pandemic
Aldbourne Post Office wins Local Hero category at the Post Office’s ‘We’re Stronger Together’ regional awards for the South West.
The awards recognise the efforts made by postmasters across the region to keep branches open during the Covid-19 pandemic and serving their local community.
The award was presented virtually to Postmasters Sue and Mark Rendell who run Aldbourne Post Office, last night by Post Office Chief Executive Nick Read. Postmasters who operate branches in South West region had the opportunity to share their experience of running their branch during the pandemic and hear directly about the Post Office’s future growth strategy.
Post Office Area Manager Rachel Chidgey, said:
“Sue and Mark at our Aldbourne branch have been nominated for our Local Hero award for their selfless commitment to another local postmaster in his time of need. Sue’s best friend lives in a village where the elderly Postmaster was feeling overwhelmed when his wife ended up in hospital after a fall. Sue offered to help with retail, supplies and cleaning of the branch for a few days. Sue then ended up helping her Postmaster colleague throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
“All the while Sue’s and Mark’s family took up the mantel of helping in her own Aldbourne Post Office giving Sue the time she needed to help elsewhere.” ...
