A market town's new 'pop up' post office will open its doors this week.
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".
The service will offer an enhanced temporary service to the postal van which has been visiting the town since January.
Services include banking, bill payment, postage, home shopping collections and returns.
