A Post Office branch is set to re-open in South Lynn in July at a new location.

South Lynn Post Office will relocate to the Tranquility gift shop at 50 London Road.

The new branch will be only 40 metres from the former branch at 58 London Road and it is due to open on Tuesday, July 5.

A spokesperson said: “When the move goes ahead, the branch will open Tuesday to Saturday from 9am to 5pm. 

“This will offer 40 hours of Post Office service every week.”

Matthew Hatfull, Post Office network provision lead, said: “We know how important a Post Office is to residents and businesses and we are delighted to be reopening a Post Office in South Lynn.

“We are keen to restore services to the community as soon as possible, so we have decided to go ahead with our plans.”  

Although the decision to re-open the branch has already been taken the Post Office is now inviting customers and interested parties to give their comments on the move.

The opportunity to give feedback specifically related to access to the new branch will close on June 15.

Customers can share their views during the consultation online at postofficeviews.co.uk with the branch code 180131.
