DECISIONS on the future of 17 post offices in Suffolk have been announced today.

Post Office has today released the details of the locations and opening times of the outreach outlets, which will replace 17 branches in the East Essex and Suffolk area.

In December it was confirmed that 47 branches across the region were due to close and 17 would be replaced by outreach services, which are designed to ensure most customers do not see any dramatic change to services.

Those changes in the Suffolk region are as follows:

Post Office has introduced a partner service to be operated from the Coddenham branch in Village Stores, offering the most commonly used Post Office services. Opening times will be 8am to 12.30pm on Tuesday, and 8am to 5.30pm from Monday to Saturday.

Customers will be able to access a wide range of services at Village Stores in Cretingham. It will be open for four hours each week, opening hours to be confirmed.
