It was intended that the new postmaster would resume the store's trading in April, however this was delayed due to the coronavirus, affecting training.

Post Office Change Manager, Antoinette Chitty, said: “We are delighted to have restored Post Office service to this area of Woodley as we know how important Post Office services are to a community.
