Post Office Helper

Submitted by: Jane Irisa

Describe your idea. How does it work and who does it help?

Map with location of all the post offices with links to websites (if they have any), listing opening times and accessibility information, and postboxes with collection days/times in the UK searchable on postcode and location, with "distance from" data so we can really see which areas lack services. Helps all post office users, planners, parish councils, local residents and tourists.

What information or services do you need?

Street-level map of UK, postcode directory, directory of post offices, directory of post boxes,
