MUCH MARCLE VILLAGE SHOP AND POST OFFICE CLOSURE
Much Marcle Village Shop and Post Office is going to close at the end of June 2019 as the proprietors reach retirement, having served the community for some thirty years.
As a listed Community Facility in the Much Marcle Neighbourhood Plan, there is a stated requirement to consider the loss of this local provision, and, following a public meeting at the end of February, a Community Steering Group has been established to explore the issue.
The Group needs to determine, in the first instance, whether an alternative shop and/or post office facility would be supported and should therefore be provided. In order to do this, information needs to be gathered about the needs and expectations of the wider community, and people’s views sought for consideration.
To that end, the Community Steering Group have created a questionnaire that we would appreciate as many people as possible completing. Views from current users of the existing facilities and otherwise will be sought.
Please, if you are at all interested in keeping some form of these services in the village or event different services, spend five minutes on completing the questionnaire. All views sought!

About Much Marcle
Much Marcle is in South Herefordshire, between the market towns of Ledbury and Ross on Wye.
We are a thriving village and still have a village store and an primary school. We also have 2 pubs, 3 cider producers, garage, village hall and 2 churches within the parish.
Explore The Village
Go to Hellens, the ramshackle Jacobean Manor House. Call in at Westons Cider mill for a tour, lunch and cider tastings. Spend time in the Church and its churchyard. Have a drink or meal in one of our pubs – The Royal Oak or the Walwyn Arms.
We have a choice of local accommodation (see the accommodation in the menubar) and are perfectly placed for holiday makers. Within an hour’s drive you can explore the Welsh Borders, the Cathedral cities of Hereford, Gloucester and Worcester, the Cotswolds, the Shropshire Hills, the Forest of Dean and the Malvern Hills.
