Members of the public are being invited to attend a six-week consultation on plans to move Barrow Post Office from its current location at 2 Ley Road, Barrow, Bury St Edmunds, to 1 The Street.

Post Office regional network manager for South & East England Mark Lawrence said: “We understand how important having a Post Office is to residents in Barrow and we are confident that this new modern branch will make it easier for our customers to do business with us and also secure services for the future.”
