Finchingfield Mobile Services CM7 4LS - 149114

Closed 10 May 2024

Opened 12 Apr 2024


We are pleased to inform you that the Postmaster from Finchingfield Post Office will operate this new mobile service to Newport, which will be located at outside Waterloo House, High Street, Newport, CB11 3PG and is scheduled to commence on Tuesday 07 May 2024 at 13:15.

Your new Post Office branch

Since the closure of the Newport branch, we have continued to work to identify a solution to restore Post Office services to the local community. Consequently, we are planning to introduce a Mobile service which is a tried and tested way of maintaining services to smaller communities.

The Mobile service is a travelling Post Office aboard a specifically designed vehicle that brings Post Office services to communities without relying on fixed premises. The establishment of the Mobile service presents the best possible solution to restore Post Office services to the community.

Other Changes

There will be some minor changes to the hours to the current Mobile services at Carver Barracks, Widdington, Great Sampford, Stebbing and opening day and time at Shalford Mobile Services from the week commencing Monday 06 May 2024.

Regrettably, due to very low customer usage, the mobile service at Wethersfield Base will be closing Tuesday 30 April 2024 at 16:30. West Wickham mobile service will also be closing on Thursday 02 May 2024 at 15:00. We hope that our customers will continue to use Post Office services from any convenient branch.

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. 

What happens next

Thank you for your support in restoring the Post Office service in Newport.
