Upgrades in line for Embleton service

A coastal village is set to get a new and improved Post Office service as modernisation works are taking place.

The refurbishment will turn it into a new open-plan branch with longer opening hours for customers.

A Post Office serving point will be available at the retail counter which is a new concept for delivering Post Office services with Post Office products and services available alongside retail transactions.

Opening hours will be 7.30am to 7pm, Monday to Saturday, and 8.30am to 4pm on Sunday during the holiday season, April to October.

From November until March, the branch will open from Monday to Saturday, 7.30am to 5pm, and Sunday, 8.30am to noon.

The branch will be closed during the work, reopening on Friday June 28.

While it is closed, customers can use the Longhoughton or Christon Bank branches.
