A post office is set to close next month and instead operate out of the back of a van which will be open 90 minutes a week.

St Johns Fen End Post Office will shut on June 10 following the resignation of the subpostmaster and the withdrawal of the premises from Post Office use.

On June 12, a Mobile Outreach Service will be launched which will be operated by the subpostmaster from Upwell Post Office using a vehicle outside the branch at School Lane.

But the van will only be there on Monday and Thursday from 8.45-9.30am.

Post Office field change advisor Wendy Hamilton said: “We understand how important having a Post Office is to residents in St Johns Fen End and we are confident this new Mobile Outreach service will meet the needs of the local community and safeguard Post Office services for the future.”

A Wisbech man has been sent for trial after denying the murder of a 35-year-old man from West Walton.

The agent trying to secure consent for a £210,000 five bedroom house to be turned into a nine bedroom room house in multiple occupation (HMO) told Fenland planners he fails to see why potential noise is an issue.

Two houses not built in accordance with the plans approved by Fenland Council can stay after officials concluded they will “not adversely harm the character and appearance of the area”.

Entertainment agency boss Jason Wright has promised to refund all those who paid £20 a head to see spiritualist Derek Acorah who pulled out of his Wisbech St Mary show at the last moment.
