The Post Office is pledging to deliver seven day a week opening if a plan to re-locate its Holt branch secures the stamp of approval.

The town's Budgens supermarket is being lined up as the base for the new branch, which is currently situated on Cromer Road.

A six week public consultation has now been launched ahead of a final decision.

The full-screened counter would open 9am–5.30pm Monday to Saturday and two open-plan counters and service point, offering a selected range of services, Monday to Saturday 8am-8pm and 10am-4pm Sunday.

The proposed move is part of a modernisation programme across the Post Office network designed to make it easier for customers to do business, through longer opening hours and modern open plan environments.

Regional manager Suzanne Richardson said: 'We are making it easier for customers to get their cash, send and collect their mail and do their banking because we know how important these services are to local residents

'We are confident that this vibrant new-style Post Office at the heart of the local community will meet customer needs.
