Marchand Petit supporting local post offices

When asked what room in a house is the heart of the home, generally people answer with ‘the kitchen’. When asked, what provides the heart of a village or town, people will tend to list as the top three, the post office, the church and the pub.  

Fortunate is the community that can lay claim to having both a post office and a village store.  Several surveys have been carried out to study the effects within a community once these life line services are diminished and Marchand Petit, the leading independent South Hams Estate Agent, is proud to be sponsoring post offices in Newton Ferrers and Yealmpton.

“One of the best ways to support the post office is to do business with them,” commented Prunella Martin, Director of the firm’s Prime Waterfront & Country House department. “It is not just a postal service that is provided by the postal office.  Now you can view a selection of our properties 24/7 and be kept informed of what new homes and developments are coming to the market.”

“We are delighted to have partnered with Yealmpton Post Office at Coronation Buildings in Market Street, Yealmpton and again in Newton Ferrers,” said Chartered Surveyor and Marchand Petit consultant Roger Punch, adding: “Local Post offices offer a community hub like no other and provide vital services for all generations, as well as a friendly welcome and often a good bit of banter or chat, so important to the community spirit.”  

Post offices offer so much these days from convenient identity and licenses services, ‘drop and go’, broadband, mobile and business services as well as meeting all your stationary needs and offering a great line in greetings cards.
