A POST office in the Tyne Valley will move to a mobile service while building work takes place.

Haydon Bridge Post Office will close for approximately four weeks from Monday, June 21 at 1pm to have building work carried out.

As the work is completed, the Post Office will provide a mobile service twice a week – on a Monday and a Thursday – provided by the postmaster from Stocksfield Post Office.

The service will operate from opposite the Co-Operative Food store in the village between 9.40-10.40am from Thursday, June 24 to Monday, July 12.

Mike Ball, Post Office partner account executive, said: “We apologise for any inconvenience caused to our customers during the work. The safety of our customers is of paramount. Therefore, to allow for refurbishment work to take place, it will be necessary for the service to close temporarily.

“We are delighted to have been able to organise a temporary solution during the building work store.”

Due to the new route the mobile service is taking to accommodate Haydon Bridge, the Bardon Mill mobile service will now only be open between 8.30-9.30am on Mondays and Thursdays.
