Flintshire pub to add Post Office to bar

Village local looks at offering more

Punters at one pub could be able to get stamps with their pint soon, as one village boozer looks at adding a post office at the end of the bar.

Halkyn, Flintshire, has been without a post office since the last one closed last April when the postmaster retired.

"He couldn't sell the business and we couldn't find another place to put it, so I put my hand up and said 'I don't know how we're going to fit this post office into the pub, but we'll give it a go".

Steve Marquis has run The Blue Bell in for nine years now, he's been telling Heart that they're just waiting for the 'ok' now:  "We've been working with the post office to come up with an acceptable specification to squeeze the post office counter onto the end of the bar.

"We're still waiting for a decision on the that but we're hoping it will be a positive one, soon."
