A POST office that has been repeatedly raided by armed robbers is today preparing to re-open.
Little Stonham Post Office was struck three times in just over three weeks last November, including two raids in one day.
It left Linda and Colin Buttle vowing to close their business and never reopen. The post office finally closed the following month.
Subsequent attempts to reopen it had failed, until now. The business will now be back in operation at the same location from December 15.
Lydia King, Post Office rural transfer adviser, said: "We would like to apologise to our loyal customers in Little Stonham for this lengthy break in service.
"We've been working hard behind the scenes to explore all possibilities for restoring convenient local access to Post Office products and services during the last year.
