A POST office in Herefordshire has closed again, with a temporary fix made to try and stop the rain coming through.

Leominster Post Office, in South Street, has had to close in the past after heavy rainfall as the roof begins to leak.

Last week it closed for four days after its roof became dangerous due to the heavy rain.

Last February, in 2021, people who live in the town took to social media over to question why the building has been closed to the public.


“Leominster Post Office is temporarily closed due to a leaking roof that requires repairs," a spokesperson said at the time.

Herefordshire was issued a yellow weather warning today (November 24).

The warning is in place from 10am to 10pm today, with the Met Office warning that a brief spell of heavy rain and strong, gusty winds could causing some transport disruption and flooding.


The Met Office said a narrow band of rain, heavy at times and perhaps briefly intense, will move eastwards through the day, with 10 to 15 millimetres likely to fall in a one-to-two-hour period.

Jan Lockett shared a photo of a white sheet across the roof, put up in a bid to stop the roof leaking.

The next closest post offices for businesses are in villages between five and 10 miles, in Kingsland, Yarpole and Shobdon.
