Village post office to be modernised

Stannington Village Post Office will close for refurbishment from April 22 to 25 for refurbishment.

The new-look open-plan branch and shop in Stannington Road will have longer opening hours, from 6am to 10pm Monday to Sunday.

It is part of a national programme that will see up to 8,000 branches modernised by The Post Office, now independent of Royal Mail.
