Dear Chorleywood Resident,

Thanks to the long-term and persistent efforts of our Executive Committee member Lisa Stewart, and the generosity and community spirit of Lords' Operations Director Tilak Patel, we are delighted to tell you that the Post Office will be opening inside Lords today,  Wednesday 5th August.
We are very fortunate to have Kay Atwal to run our new Post Office.  Kay has over 30 years’ experience and we welcome her to the village and wish her every success. 
Initially, hours will be Monday to Friday 9am to 3pm and Saturday 9am to 12.30pm. Last collection from the Post Office will be 2pm. 
Tilak said “Lords is always interested in supporting the community in any way we can. We have seen how much Chorleywood has missed a Post Office, so are therefore happy to donate floor space for a Post Office counter to operate for the next three months, until a permanent solution can be found. The importance of supporting our community has never been seen more than this year. We wish the Post Office every success and look forward to welcoming you all soon.
The Chorleywood Residents' Association are still working with the Post Office to provide a permanent solution. Several other retailers have shown interest. If you are interested in incorporating a permanent Post Office facility within your retail outlet, or in applying to run the Post Office, please click on this link: Chorleywood Town Post Office  If you are only interested in manning the Post Office, please contact Elaine Ashcroft at Interim Enterprises Ltd on 07384 315764. Full training will be provided.

If you have any problems, please contact Graham Simmons, our Area Network Manager, by email at

Best wishes
