After four years as Cromarty subpostmaster, today Marcel Gommers hands over the business to new subpostmaster Estelle Quick. Marcel, who previously worked for Plexus Media, plans to concentrate his attention on web publishing, particularly developing his growing number of transport-related websites.
Museum consultant Estelle said that she is taking over a successful business that she will continue to run along similar lines. She plans some additions to the shop stock and hints that Cromarty chocolate-lovers are in for a treat by the end of the month.
The post office will be closed this morning and will re-open later today when the official handover process has been completed.
