Appledore Post Office is relocating to a new premises - next door to its current one.

The current post master will continue running the shop but it will be moving to the shop next door to Johns of Appledore instead.

This is due to Johns currently undergoing a refurbishment of its shop and cafe.

The new opening hours will be Monday to Sunday, 8am-6pm.

Sarah Cottrell, Post Office area manager, said: “Our postmasters operates Post Office branch alongside their private retail business, and it is important that they make the very best use of their resources to ensure future sustainability of the service.

“In this case, our partner has identified an opportunity to move this branch into a more modern premises that is located next door and which will be refurbished to provide customers a better standard of service.”

The current branch is due to close on Tuesday, February 13, at 6pm with the new post office branch opening on Thursday, March 1, at 1pm.
