A village Post Office is in line for a major transformation into a convenient store which will see its opening hours significantly extended.

As part of the modernisation programme the Post Office in Ormesby is proposed to be converted into a SPAR and will be open for an additional 71 hours and 30 minutes a week.

The new site would be in 13 North Road, Ormesby.

It is designed to make it easier for customers to do business through a modern open plan environment.

Post Office services would be provided from an open-plan counter alongside the retail counter.

Opening hours would be Monday to Saturday, 7am to 6.30pm and Sunday, 8am to 12.30pm.

Wendy Hamilton, Post Office area network change manager, said: “We are confident that this vibrant new-style Post Office at the heart of the local community will meet customer needs.

“This modernisation is part of a major investment programme, the largest in the history of the Post Office and will secure services for the future.”

The Post Office will hold a public consultation where it will look for feedback.

Customers can share their views during the consultation online at with the branch code 434136.
