The Post Office service in Newport is to move again and reopen as a full-time 46-hour service.

The resignation of the Postmaster led to an 18-month gap, then a part-time temporary service at Debden Grange retirement village opened last summer.

This service will cease on Wednesday (June 22) at noon.

A new-look Post Office will open at Newport Pharmacy, The Brown House, High Street, Newport, on Tuesday, June 28 at 9am.

Matt Hatfull, Post Office Network Provision Lead said: “We are delighted to be restoring a permanent, full-time Post Office for Newport as we know how important a Post Office is to a community.”

Tom Lee, Debden Grange village manager, said: "I was really pleased to be able to support the Post Office while it was here and I'm pleased it has found a new permanent home."
