Completing training and final handover details means that the new post office at the An Crùbh community hub looks likely to be delayed.

Earlier reports suggested the new service would operate from March 24 but now, via social media, the Duisdale Beag facility have confirmed it will be Thursday 13 April before the postal services will be operational there.

Meanwhile work is proceeding apace to try and ensure An Crùbh's shop and cafe are ready in time for the planned Saturday 1 April opening.
