Post Office re-locating

A VALUED village facility is on the move.

Pegswood Colliery Post Office in John Street will re-locate to Brown’s Greengrocers in De Walden Terrace.

The change, which includes extended opening hours, is part of a Post Office scheme to deliver services alongside retail transactions from an open-plan counter during shop opening hours.

The existing branch will close at 5.30pm on Monday, March 3, re-opening at the new premises the following day at 1pm. Its new opening hours will be 8.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Saturday.

Post Office Regional Network Manager Suzanne Richardson said: “We are confident that this new modern branch will meet the needs of the local community.”
