Here is the happy smiling face that we know at our Post Office, the glass window shows him as Mr D Jangra.
His name is Dharm (as in Durham) and he was born in the Punjab, India and came to Slough in 1968.
He moved into his Post Office on the corner of Grange Road 16 years ago. All three grown up children went to Cookham Rise Primary School.
Post offices are in the family’s blood – Mrs Jangra runs a second one in Farnham Royal and he drives her there and back each day. This keeps the two of them unbelievably busy with the shop to supply and account for as well as the Post Office (which is one of the few in the area that does car tax discs.)
But Dharm still finds time to be Chairman of the Hindu Temple in Slough with a growing membership of over 1250. “The nicest thing about living in Cookham is the village life and the freedom. The worse thing is the parking on my double yellow lines!”
The Post Office had an attempted robbery earlier in the year but brave Mr Jangra fended off the frightening attack with a chair!
