A new mobile service has been introduced to 10 rural communities which have faced Post Office closures.
The travelling Post Office, which is aboard a specifically designed vehicle, will deliver services to people in Bircham, East Rudham, Harpley, Hillington, Sedgeford, Thornham, West Newton, Langham, Field Dalling and Brancaster Staithe.
A new postmaster has been appointed to operate the service.
Matthew Hatfull, Post Office area network change manager, said: 'We have continued to work to identify a solution that will enable us to restore services to the local communities.
'We are introducing a Post Office Mobile service, which is a tried and tested way of maintaining service to smaller communities.'
