Post office to be re-opened

The post office in Bracklesham Bay will be re-opening next month with extended hours.

 

The post office will have a new location in Bestway Retail in Bracklesham Lane, and will be opening daily from 6am – 10pm.

 

There will be a wide range of services available, including banking facilities for personal customers and small businesses.

 

The post office will be re-opening on Wednesday, October 16, at 1pm.

 

The opening hours will be significantly longer than before – for 112 hours per week.

 

Woodlands post office closed temporarily in December, 2017, due to the resignation of the postmaster and the withdrawal of the premises.

 

Services will now be offered from a low-screened, open-plan serving point alongside the retail counter.

 

Dean Morris, multiples account executive, said:

 

“We are delighted to be able to restore a post office to this area and we hope that customers will continue to use the service.

 

“The longer opening hours than before will make it easier for customers to get their cash, send and collect their mail and do their banking because we know how important these services are to local residents.

 

“We are confident that this vibrant new-style post office at the heart of the local community will meet customer needs.”

 

There is currently a step at the entrance to the new premises.

 

However, planning permission has been submitted for a ramp and handrail to be installed.
