The post office is to return to Stradbroke

A community service is to return to a Suffolk village.

For nearly two years residents in Stradbroke, near Framlingham, have been without a post office, since the company decided to close its branch for operational reasons.

However the Post Office has decided to go ahead with the proposal to re-open its Stradbroke branch in Stradbroke Library.

The new home for the branch is only 100 metres away from the former base that closed its doors in July 2012.

Post Office regional network manager Julia Marwood said: “We understand how important post office services are to residents in Stradbroke and we are confident this new modern branch will meet the needs of the local community and secure services for the future.

This modernisation is part of a major investment programme, the largest in the history of the 
Post Office and marks a commitment to no more branch closure programmes.”

Although a date for reopening has not yet been confirmed, the company believes it is likely to be towards the end of the summer. Posters will be displayed to advise customers of when the move will take place.

The branch will have the same opening hours as the library –Tuesdays from 2.30pm-5pm and 5.30pm-7.30pm, Thursdays from 10am-1pm and 2.30pm-5pm, Fridays from 2.30pm-5pm, Saturdays from 10am-12.30pm and Sundays 10am-3pm.

It will be closed on Mondays and Wednesdays.
