WORK is almost complete at Hexham's new Post Office.

The post office will reopen at the new High Street Convenience Store, at 12 Battle Hill, on Monday, February 24.

The move has moved a step closer after signs went up on Tuesday.

The post office at Beales closed the same day, meaning services in the town are limited until the new store opens.

Between the closure of Beales and the opening of the new store, a temporary mobile service will be provided on Friday, February 21 between 10am and 3pm. It will be located at Hexham Abbey car park.

Customers are otherwise advised to use the post office in Corbridge.
