A mobile post office service in Lavenham - which was put in place when The Pharmacy-based branch closed suddenly last month - has extended its opening hours.

The service from a mobile van is now available Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm at Laveham Village Hall car park. Previously, there was an afternoon-only service.

Sue Whittall, Post Office Regional Network Manager, said: “We are delighted to be able to offer a fuller restoration of Post Office services to Lavenham. Longer term we are looking to relocate the branch to a permanent location. We are committed to providing a Post Office in Lavenham.

“We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused by the temporary closure. The vacancy for Lavenham will soon be re-advertised on our website to help to provide a permanent full-time solution.”

The Post Office sad the branch closed due to “private contractual reasons”.
