Post Boxes

As at 01-March-2021, the last collection times from the post boxes were as follows:

Alne Village:  5:30pm Mon-Fri, 1:00pm Saturday. This post box is cunningly hidden in the wall of the old post office (c1943-2005). This is two houses to the west of the Bluebell Inn.

Alne Station: 5:30pm Mon-Fri, 1:00pm Saturday. The post box is at the entrance to the old Alne station.

No collections on Sundays or Bank Holidays.

There is no obvious way to get these times automatically updated. So, if you see that they have changed, please contact us through the website contact page.

Every project needs a driver.

Robert Brech (probably on his tombstone!)  Committees rarely drive successful projects, only a driver does that.
