The Post Office confirmed it was opening the service in the former Thomas Cook building in Miller's Walk, Fakenham, this Thursday, February 27. The town has been without a post office since January 20, after the closure of Martin's newsagents.

Fakenham will be the first of five locations in the country to have this "temporary solution".

Services include banking, bill payment, postage, home shopping collections and returns.

"We continue to seek a permanent solution for the people of Fakenham."

The new opening hours will be Monday, Tuesday and Thursday: 9am - 5.30pm; Wednesday: 9am - 1pm; Saturday: 9am - 12.30pm.
