HARTLAND Post Office is being given a makeover next month.

The new-look branch at 16-18 Fore Street will close for refurbishment on Monday, June 25 and reopen with extended hours on Wednesday, June 27.

The company said it had also appointed a new agent to run the service, which will be one of only 100 ‘new style’ branches operating around the country.

Post Office field change adviser, Colin Pound, said: “Post Office services will be offered from an open plan till on the retail counter and customers will benefit from longer opening hours 8am-9pm Monday to Saturday, and Sunday opening from 8am-1pm and 3.30pm-7.30pm.”

Customers will be able to access a wide range of products and services including automated banking; bill and budget payment schemes; Post Office card account; postal orders as well as postage for national and international letters, packets and parcels.

People are being advised to use Post Office services in Bideford and Woolsery during the period of refurbishment.
