Fleet Hargate Post Office is to move to nearby Gedney later this month.

The move to the Chestnuts Tea Rooms, Farm Shop and Garden Centre in Topsgate happens on Thursday, March 30 at 1pm.

It will be a modern, open-plan branch with Post Office services delivered from an open-plan till alongside the tea room’s counter.

Services will be provided throughout shop opening hours: Monday to Saturday 9am-4pm and Sunday 10am-4pm. The current branch at Old Main Road will close on Wednesday, March 29 at 5pm.

Post Office 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.

“During public consultation the main feedback focused on the distance from the centre of the village. We acknowledge the new premises are 650 metres away from the current site and that this will inconvenience some people.

“For those unable to access the new location on foot or by car, there is a frequent bus service from the current branch with the bus stop within 130 metres of the new site. “
