IT’S soon to be red letter day for Leamington Post Office.
The town’s branch is set to reopen its doors next month following major repairs.
The Post Office was forced to close its doors in Bath Street in June 2020 due to structural damage to the roof, which caused leaks inside the building.
A temporary post office has been operating at Leamington Town Hall.
But on Monday February 13 the post office will return to its proper home – opening its doors for business from 9am.
The same postmaster will continue to operate the post office and its opening hours will be Monday to Friday, 9am to 5.30pm and Saturdays from 9am until 12.20pm.
This is longer than the interim hours that could be provided at the town hall.
Anne Murphy, Post Office Network Provision Lead, said: “We are delighted to be able to return Leamington branch to its permanent location after vital repairs. We are very grateful to Warwick District Council who helped us to provide an interim Post Office solution at the town hall, which allowed us to maintain Post Office services in this vicinity.”
