A PORTSMOUTH post office is to be given a new lease of life.

The Post Office is to modernise its branch at One-Stop Stores in Allaway Avenue, Paulsgrove.

The store will close for its refurbishment at 5.30pm on Monday, March 2, and reopen on Thursday, March 19, at 1pm.

It will have three serving counters and a counter that is open on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8.30am to 5.30pm and on Wednesdays and Fridays from 9am to 5.30pm.

The Post Office service will be available seven days a week.

Adrian Skinner, Post Office area manager, said: ‘We know how important these services are to residents in Paulsgrove, and we’re confident this vibrant modern Post Office, at the heart of the community, will be popular.

‘The modernisation is part of a major government investment programme that is enabling us to continue investing in the Post Office network and to map out a bold growth strategy through to the end of the decade.’
