Closes 10 Dec 2020

Opened 12 Nov 2020


We are pleased to let you know that we will be restoring Post Office services to the community in Hunton with the introduction of a permanent Mobile van Post Office service

The Mobile Post Office service will operate from Outside Hunton & Arrathorne Village Hall, Hunton, Bedale, DL8 1QB and is scheduled to commence from Wednesday 2 December 2020.

Your new Mobile Post Office service

Hunton Post Office branch will be closing on Thursday 26 November 2020, following the resignation of the Postmaster and the withdrawal of the premises for Post Office use.

We have continued to work to identify a solution to restore services to the local community. We are therefore introducing a Mobile service, which is a tried and tested way of maintaining service to the local 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. 

We are pleased to inform you that the Postmaster from Bedale Post Office is willing to offer services to the above location. The establishment of a Mobile service presents the best possible solution to restore Post Office services to the local community of Hunton.


We have also made some minor changes to the hours to the current Mobile services at Crakehall, West Witton, Newton Le Willows and Snape. These changes will take effect from week commencing Monday 30 November 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. 

We are keen to restore services to this community as soon as possible so we are now progressing with these plans. However, we would welcome suggestions about specific aspects of the change such as access arrangements and the internal layout.
