A mobile Post Office service is to extend its postal coverage in order to serve a number of communities which have been without a Post Office.

Post Office Ltd is restoring Post Office services to Walton Highway, Magdalen and Marham with a mobile service on Monday January 25 using a Post Office vehicle which currently operates in Upwell.

The Post Office services in Magdalen and Marham have been closed for some time, and Walton Highway closed in September last year.

Beginning at the end of this month, Upwell Postmaster Pam Salmon has agreed to extend the town’s current service to accomodate those communities without service.

The mobile will visit Walton Highway on Monday and Thursday 9.15 to 10.15am, with its stop to be located outside the old Post Office, St Pauls Road North, Walton Highway, PE14 7DN.
