Polegate’s Post Office is to be refurbished next month.
It’s part of a modernisation programme taking place across the network, to make the site a main-style branch, which will see longer opening hours.
The brand will close on Monday 3 October at 5.30pm and will re-open on Friday 28 October, although the store will remain open throughout the work.
The town’s MP Maria Caulfield is welcoming the makeover, saying, “Together with the Mayor of Polegate Cllr David Watts, and Cllr Angela Snell I have held a number of meetings with representatives from the Post Office, to discuss the future of the Polegate Branch.”
“I am therefore, delighted with this announcement which is great news for my constituents within the Polegate community, in which the Post Office has such an important role.”
“This programme of modernisation - which is underpinned by Government investment - and the Post Office’s move towards diversification will ensure its future for many years to come, and this can only be a positive step forward.”
Adding, Mayor of Polegate David Watts said, "I am delighted to see that a refurbishment programme is about to start in the Polegate Post office and that an enhanced service of a main style branch is to be offered. This is good news for Polegate and its residents, many of whom rely on the Post Office Services locally."
