The post office will be moving from its home in Furze Platt Road to Shifford Crescent from September.

The current branch has been run by a temporary agent since a contract with the postmaster came to an end.

From Thursday, September 15, at 1pm the service will move to Stop N Shop, with Hetal Patel appointed as postmaster.

Sue Whittall, regional network manager, said: “We understand how important having a post office is to residents in this area.

“The move, part of a major investment programme, the largest in the history of the Post Office, aims to secure Post Office services to the local community for the longer term by providing a more modern and commercially viable service. We are confident this new post office service will meet the needs of the local community.”

The new service will be open from 6am-8pm Monday to Saturday and 6am-4pm on Sundays which is an extra 48 hours.

The current branch will close on Wednesday, Sept-ember 14 at 5.30pm.
