postofficeThe Post Office in Binstead will open a new-style ‘local’ service on Tuesday 3rd March at 13:00, with upgrades being made to the village store also.

The upcoming modernisation means the Post Office service will be provided at a combination counter, where the Post Office terminal will sit beside the retail till instead of a separate screened counter.

To allow for the changes to take place, locals are advised that the Post Office will close for refurbishment on Saturday 21st February at 17:30, however, the village store will remain open.
