Stephen Timms officially opened two refurbished Post Offices today on Barking Road and High Street North. They are part of three Post Offices that have been renovated by Subpostmaster Mr Jawad Khan.
All three Post Offices now have the same look and are designed to be able to deliver Post Office products and services alongside retail transactions. There are three serving positions: two modern screened serving positions and also a retail serving point. In addition the Post Offices are now open longer on weekdays and will operate on Saturday afternoons.
Speaking after the event Stephen said: “I am delighted to have these three modernised Post Offices in my constituency. Post Offices are a vital part of the community. It is great that The Post Office and Subpostmaster Mr Khan have invested in these branches and retail businesses. Local residents and businesses will greatly benefit from the extended opening hours.”
