A new Post Office has opened as part of a modernisation and investment programme.

It is open 44 hours a week from Monday to Saturday.

Old Newton’s Post Office joins the Haughley and Wolsey Road branches in bringing vital services to the rural area surrounding Stowmarket.

Wendy Hamilton, Post Office area network change manager, said: “We know how important our services are to customers and are confident that this brand new Post Office, alongside the other branches in the area at Haughley and Wolsey Road, will have easy access to our services.”
