All change at Netherfield Post Office


A new-style Post Office ‘local’ service will be opening at Netherfield on March 31, with extended opening hours.

The Post Office, at Darvel Down, will close for refurbishment on Tuesday March 22 at 1pm.

The new-look branch will have enhanced local services including manual

banking (non-barcoded transactions), Transcash, and Royal Mail and Parcelforce Worldwide International parcels. Payment by cheque will still be accepted.

As part of the branch modernisation, the postmaster is converting a store room into a coffee shop.

The branch will open for an extra 31-and-a-half hours a week.

The revised opening hours are: Monday to Friday 8am-7pm, Saturday 8am–6pm and Sunday 9am–noon.

Post Offices in Battle and Catsfield will be available to customers while the Netherfield branch is closed for refurbishment.
