The Post Offices will be given computer equipment costing £1,500 thanks to the Post Office Development Fund which was launched at the start of the year, reports the Daily Post.

It is hoped that the facility will allow residents in rural areas, particularly farmers, the opportunity to make use of broadband access.

The Farmers' Union of Wales had raised fears relating to the submission of stock transfer forms online, as necessitated by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

Unveiling the Post Office Development Fund, deputy minister for regeneration Leighton Andrews said that it was sensible to use Post Offices to help local residents in any way possible.

He commented: "We want to see Post Offices thrive so that they can continue to provide an essential service in the communities they serve."
