A post office will reopen after a complete refurbishment.

The branch in Market Place, Uppingham, will welcome customers to the revamped premises from 1pm tomorrow (Thursday). Workmen have been busy for the last two weeks creating an open-plan office which, once reopened, will offer longer opening hours to customers.

Post Office area manager Lesley Frankland said: “We understand how important Post Office services are to the people of Uppingham and we are confident that this new modern post office service will meet the needs of the local community and secure services for the future.”

“The modernisation is part of a major investment programme to convert the Post Office network to new-style branches and this investment, the largest in the history of the Post Office, marks a commitment to no more branch closure programmes.”

The refurbished branch will have three serving positions. One will be a traditional screened position and the other two will be open plan. The current range of post office services will continue to be offered.

Opening hours at the revamped branch will be 9am to 5.30pm Monday to Saturday.
