We’ve been asked a few times what’s going on at the old Post Office, so here goes.
As you may know local business family, the Howards, bought the building last year and the Post Office has moved to a temporary site further along West Street.
The old Post Office is now having an enormous amount of building work done, including the construction of a mezzanine floor and a cellar, so it’ll be three storeys inside.
According to the owners, the project has evolved since they bought it and their latest vision needs more space – hence the extra floors.
They’re planning to have room for over 100 people inside in the Real English Drinks House, plus of course space for the returning Post Office.
Latest news is that the extra work has caused delays to the original timetable, but they hope to be completed and fitted out in August.
Good luck to all those involved!
