Res­i­dents will be also be able to make cash with­drawals from a Post Of­fice Card Ac­count, send funds abroad us­ing Money­gram, pay bills, buy hol­i­day money, get in­sur­ance, mortgages, sav­ings and top up mo­bile phones.

Dave Ogleby, Post Of­fice area man­ager, said: “We are mak­ing it eas­ier for cus­tomers to get their cash, send and col­lect their mail and do their bank­ing be­cause we know how im­por­tant these ser­vices are to lo­cal res­i­dents.

He added:“We are con­fi­dent that this vi­brant new-style Post Of­fice at the heart of the lo­cal com­mu­nity will meet cus­tomer needs. This mod­erni­sa­tion is part of a ma­jor in­vest­ment pro­gramme, the largest in the his­tory of the Post Of­fice.”
