After public local engagements the posters below confirm our final plans for the both new Hosted Mobile services.



We are pleased to let you know that we will be restoring Post Office services to the community of Salhouse and South Walsham with the introduction of a permanent Mobile Hosted Outreach service. The Mobile Hosted Outreach service at Salhouse and South Walsham is scheduled to commence on Wednesday 29 January 2020.

Since the closure of the above service we have continued to work to identify a solution to restore services to the local community. We have therefore introduced a Mobile service, which is a tried and tested way of maintaining service to smaller communities. The Mobile Service is a travelling Post Office aboard a specifically designed vehicle that brings Post Office services and retail products to communities without relying on fixed premises that has formed part of our operational network for some years now.

The Postmaster from Aylsham Post Office is willing to offer services to the above locations. The establishment of a Mobile service presents the best possible solution to restore Post Office services to the local community in Salhouse and South Walsham.

To accommodate these new services, we have made some minor changes to the current opening hours of the Hosted Outreach services offered at Newton St Faiths, Worstead and Bodham. Bacton Mobile Service will continue to operate on Tuesdays between 10:30 and 11:30. These changes will take effect from Wednesday 29 January 2020.

We constantly monitor the number of customers using Post Office services and we are confident that our proposed changes will be welcomed by our customers in the local communities. 

Further details of these services are provided at the end of this letter.

Why We Are Consulting

We would like you to tell us what you think about the suitability of the new locations.
