Here is an update regarding the post office service operating on Thursday’s in Walgrave.

There have been a few teething problems, but hopefully these are now resolved and things will  run smoothly.   If this proves to be successful, there may be an option to open at different times or for a longer period.

They are also trialling tea/coffee refreshments at 50p to run alongside the post office for a chance for people waiting to use the services.

Here is the poster
