POGMOOR Post Office is closing for refurbishment from May 22 to 27.

The refurb will see its opening hours extended from 7.45am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 6pm on Saturday.

“We understand how important having a Post Office is to residents in Pogmoor," said the Post Office's regional manager, Adrian Wales. "We're confident that this new modern Post Office service will meet the needs of the local community and secure services for the future.

“This modernisation is part of a three-year investment programme - the largest in the history of the Post Office - that will see around 6,000 branches converting to new-style branches.

"This investment makes a commitment to no more branch closure programmes.”

Pogmoor will re-open on May 28 at 7.45am.
