Jimmy Cricket was only too pleased to help out an old friend at the reopening of a post office in Greater Manchester earlier this summer.
The famous Northern Ireland entertainer was invited to the special event in Oldham by Paul Couglan, who is the new franchise owner of the revamped Royton Post Office.
Paul, an acquaintance of Jimmy, already runs a successful post office at nearby Moston in north Manchester.
Also present at the relaunch was Michael Meacher, a British Labour politician who has been the Member of Parliament for Oldham West and Royton since 1997.
Jimmy said: ” I was thrilled to be able to support Paul at the start of his new venture. He has always tried to support me over the years with his new musicals and shows.
“I wish Paul all the best with Royton Post Office and hope it’s a major success.”
The event was featured in the 18 June edition of the Oldham Evening Chronicle (see image above).
