Post Office service for Wangford, near Lowestoft, to be restored
Residents of a north Suffolk village are set to get a new Post Office outreach service this month after a wait of nearly three years.
From March 22, the outreach service at Wangford, near Lowestoft, will be open on Tuesdays from 10am to noon and from 1pm to 3pm on Thursdays, and will be operated by the sub-postmaster at Saxmundham post office.
It will be based in the village community centre in Millfields, which has wheelchair access.
Wangford has been without an outreach service since June 2009, prompting a high profile campaign by villagers to get it reinstated with the backing of Suffolk Coastal MP Dr Therese Coffey.
Post Office spokesman Wendy Hamilton said: 'We are pleased that another sub-postmaster has been identified, providing us with the opportunity to restore Post Office services from the community centre in Wangford.'
