Hastings Old Town “Essentials” Post and Go kiosk is on the move..

. . Thanks to a correspondent to this blog, who has reported that the Post and Go kiosk installed at the Premier store at Hastings, Old Town in 2008 was this week removed for  installation in ‘pastures new’ In latter times it appeared to be rather ‘unloved’ hidden behind some crisp boxes and rather under utilised~ This is a great shame as the mantra here obviously is ‘use it or lose it’ and it appears that the good citizens of Hastings, Old Town have lost their machine. It just remains to be seen where this particular kiosk ‘resurfaces’- watch this space.

As part of an overall program of alignment of the ‘set’ of Postage Labels produced for use in  Royal Mails postal system Post and Go machines will commence to dispense ‘Perforated’ labels.  All existing P&G sites will migrate across to these new labels once the existing rolls are used up.

It is believed that the first site to use thes labels was Clapham Common in early February 2009, followed by Bristol and Doncaster. (Confirmation required).

Further changes to the content printed on the label are expected soon…. Watch this space…
