A POST OFFICE located in a Flintshire village is set to close next month, it has been confirmed.

The post office at Ffynnongroyw will be closing its doors on Tuesday, May 7.

Run by Iain and Tracey Daniels, it has been an important part of the village for a number of years.

That includes during the Covid-19 pandemic when it helped many residents through the lockdown periods.

No mobile service is currently being planned to take its place when it closes.

That means that Ffynnongroyw residents face the prospect of travelling to the likes of Talacre or Mostyn to access their post office services in person.


Another nearby Post Office at Penyffordd closed just a few years ago.

Llanasa and Trelawnyd Councillor Glyn Banks is campaigning to bring mobile services to the area following the closure announcement.

Taking to social media this week, he said: "Very sad news that Ffynnongroew post office will be closing on 7th May 2024.

"We wish Iain and Tracey well in the future, not forgetting they served us for many years and helped many people especially through the lockdown period.

"I've already asked about the urgency for a mobile postal service as now Penyffordd and Ffynnongroew will both be without a service.

"Please have your say on the consultation (on the Post Office website) and make sure you ask for a mobile post office service - other areas of Flintshire already receive this valuable service so no reason for us to not receive it too."

Cllr Banks added: "After what they've (Post Office) done to their own workers I'm disappointed but not surprised by the news."

The Post Office has been approached for comment on the closure.
