NFRN and sub postmasters discuss possible merger

The membership associations representing independent newsagents and sub postmasters have held “positive” talks about forming an alliance, said NFRN Chief Executive Paul Baxter.

Senior representatives from the NFRN met with officials and members from the National Federation of SubPostmasters on January 13th to discuss the possibility of a merger.

Speaking afterwards, Baxter said: “The NFSP is currently considering a number of options regarding its future and has approached a number of organisations to explore a potential merger.”

Baxter believes that the NFRN’s structure and size, along with the benefits enjoyed by its members, could offer significant support to sub postmasters and that a tie-up would be a positive step for both organisations.

He concluded: “It was a very positive meeting and the NFRN’s presentation was very well received.”
