Village post office to close

A NORTH Northumberland post office is to close at the end of the month.

Beadnell’s post office, in the Sea Breeze shop, will close on March 31 but it is hoped that the service will be re-established ‘as soon as possible’.

Post Office Ltd spokesman Heulyn Gwyn Davies said: “We can confirm that Beadnell Post Office® will close on March 31 due to circumstances beyond the control of Post Office Ltd.

“However, this is a temporary closure as we are committed to re-establishing a Post Office service in the area as soon as possible.

“We are working with locally elected representatives to achieve this and will be updating our customers shortly.”
