CROSS Roads Post Office has reopened at a new location.

A branch is now operating from SMS Workshop Supplies, at 117 Bocking.

Post Office products and services are being provided from an open-plan till at the counter of the hardware store.

The outlet will be open from 8am to 5pm weekdays and 8.30am to 12.30pm on Saturdays.

The former branch, at 43 Cross Roads, closed in April last year following the resignation of the postmaster.

Allison Wallace, for Post Office Ltd, said: “We are delighted to have restored a service to this area. We’re confident that this new-style post office will meet customer needs.”
