your community SHOP and post office needs you!

With high street banks closing their local branches at an alarming rate (NatWest is due to close in February 2023, which leaves Oxted and Limpsfield with HSBC and the Yorkshire Building Society), it’s no surprise that our post offices, including our local village ones, are feeling the pressure with many people now using them for their everyday banking services.

Limpsfield Memorial Stores and Post Office on Limpsfield High Street, has been run by the community for the benefit of the community since 1999 with minimum paid employees and a reliance on volunteers in both the shop and the Post Office.

They are currently looking for volunteer help in the stores, but particularly in the Post Office. So if you are looking for something interesting and can commit to a minimum of half a day a week, then they’d love to hear from you.
