Leaving a Parking Space for the village mobile Post Office

Parking Space for the village Post Office. On behalf of the village Post Van which comes to Nettlebed on a Monday and Thursday morning, can you please make sure you do not move the traffic cones placed in front of the village club (to the left). This place is reserved for the Post Office Van as it is the only place in the car park with a reliable WiFi signal (needed for card transactions). Malcolm from the club kindly puts out these cones every Monday and Thursday but recently it has been bought to our attention that people are moving these cones and parking there (thought to be dog walkers). Please, on behalf of this valuable resource please be considerate and kind. There are plenty of other parking spaces in the car park! Thank you for your time. ...
