Services of a village post office could be moved to a different location which would offer longer opening hours seven days a week.

Post Office has now launched a public consultation into the proposed relocation of its branch in Upwell, near Wisbech.

Under the proposals, the Upwell Post Office could be moved to more modern facility at the nearby G & B Superstore Ltd.

The Post Office says the move will provide:-

- A modern open-plan environment.

- An extra 70 hours of Post Office services per week.

- All day opening at weekends for customers.
