Post of­fice to of­fer a Sun­day ser­vice

Revamped branch to be avail­able seven days a week with ex­tra fa­cil­i­ties for cus­tomers

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS - By Zoe Drewett zoe.drewett@trin­i­tymir­

CUS­TOMERS will get a new Post Of­fice which has been given the stamp of ap­proval to open on Sun­days.

The Field End Road Post Of­fice is go­ing to open seven days a week, of­fer­ing cus­tomers postal ser­vices from 6am un­til 8pm daily, fol­low­ing a re­fur­bish­ment.

After the makeover, the branch, just off the round­about with Vic­to­ria Road and Field End Road in South Ruis­lip, will in­clude Post Of­fice coun­ters and shop coun­ters to of­fer Post Of­fice ser­vices dur­ing shop open­ing hours, sim­i­lar to branches that have re­cently opened in Ruis­lip High Street and in Vic­to­ria Road, Ruis­lip Manor.

As well as the usual postal ser­vices on of­fer, the re-vamped branch will al­low cus­tomers to make on­line bank­ing cash de­posits, with­drawals and bill pay­ments as well as of­fer­ing ser­vices in­volv­ing in­surance, mort­gages, sav­ings and mo­bile phone top ups.

Area man­ager Keith Long said: “We know how im­por­tant Post Of­fice ser­vices are to res­i­dents and we are con­fi­dent that this vi­brant mod­ern Post Of­fice at the heart of the com­mu­nity will be popular.

“The mod­erni­sa­tion is part of a ma­jor gov­ern­ment in­vest­ment pro­gramme that is en­abling us to con­tinue in­vest­ing in the Post Of­fice net­work and to map out a bold growth strat­egy through to the end of the decade.”

The open­ing hours were pre­vi­ously Mon­day to Fri­day from 9am to 5.30pm, on Satur­day from 9am to 1pm and closed on Sun­days.

But the new open­ing hours will see the Post Of­fice avail­able from 9am to 6pm Mon­day to Satur­day and closed on Sun­day, but with post of­fice ser­vices avail­able from the re­tail counter in the shop from 6am to 8pm, seven days a week.

This means an in­crease of 51 hours in which peo­ple can visit the branch.

The Post Of­fice was due to be closed for re­fur­bish­ment yes­ter­day (Tues­day) at 5.30pm and will re-open on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 1, at 1pm.

Mean­while, Post Of­fice cus­tomers can use West Mead Post Of­fice, in Vic­to­ria Road, Ruis­lip, or Northolt Post Of­fice, in Man­dev­ille Road, Northolt.
