Ceremony at the Post Office to mark the end of an era for the village (1)

On Tuesday 25th March a small ceremony was held at the post office to mark the end of an era for the village.

The postal service began in Belford in the 17th century. Since then it has seen postboys on horseback, mail coaches, push bikes, post vans and those who delivered the mail on foot. The Church Street building opened as a post office in 1893 when there were nine postmen delivering mail each day. It has changed little over the years really in that the post office was on the ground floor with accommodation above.

Ceremony at the Post Office to mark the end of an era for the village (3)

To add to this list we must mention Peter Lawrie and his staff. Peter has served us cheerfully for twenty three years - a real achievement. The photographs show a small but select group of local people gathered to enjoy a piece of cake and also taking the opportunity to wish the current post master well in his retirement.

Peter Lawrie, postmaster, cut the cake.

Ceremony at the Post Office to mark the end of an era for the village (2)

A large cake was provided to mark of the end of an era for this building. The cake was made by the very talented Margaret Smith. She had painted the history of the post in Belford onto it in the forms of a post boy, a mail coach and a post van.

In a short speech Eric Gassner paid tribute to many people who retired from local shops and left their mark on Belford making it a better place for all. People such as John Smith at the paper shop, Marjorie MacDonald at The Hobby Horse, the Atkin family at the Craft Gallery, the list goes on.

The new Community Greenhouse is now complete

The Community Group has funded a 20ft by 16ft greenhouse which is fully equipped. This is for youngsters, hopefully from both schools, to use to grow on flowers for the village and food for their meals. It is hoped that plants will be on sale from their efforts. Special thanks to Gilbert Birdsall for putting down the base and to Les Carr for the many hours he has spent getting this all ready. Volunteers to help would be welcome although this needs to be cleared through the school because of Child Protection Policies. If you are interested, get in touch with Les Carr or the school (213361).
