Elveden will have a new Post Office on Tuesday.

After two months of consultation about the move earlier this year, the existing Post Office on the old A11 will close at 2.30pm on Monday and the new one opens in The Courtyard Bookshop, about 400 yards away, at 1pm the next day.

The Post Office said: “It will become a modern local-style branch with Post Office services provided from an open-plan till at the shop counter instead of from a separate screened counter.

“Services will be provided throughout the bookshop’s opening hours: Monday to Saturday 9:30am - 5pm; Sunday 10am - 5pm.”

The Post Office says this is an extra 20 hours a week, including all day Sunday.

The branch will also open longer each day as the current branch closes mid-afternoon.”

Will Russell, Post Office Regional Manager said: “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.”
