The Fernbank Road Post Office in Winkfield Row will move to a new home at Ascot Local in Warren Row on December 3.

It will be a new-style local branch with Post Office services provided from an open-plan counter alongside the retail area offering significantly extended opening hours - Monday to Saturday 7am to 10pm, Sunday 8am to 9pm.

The current branch at 4 Royal Hunt Parade, Fernbank Road, will close on Monday, December 2 at 5.30pm.

Samantha Coe, Post Office Area Network Change Manager, said: “We are making it easier for customers to get their cash, send and collect their mail and do their banking because we know how important these services are to local residents. We are confident that this vibrant new-style Post Office at the heart of the local community will meet customer needs. This modernisation is part of a major investment programme, the largest in the history of the Post Office and will secure services for the future.”
