Opened 10 Mar 2020

Results updated 30 Apr 2021

Following local public engagement, the letter below confirms our final plans for the branch.



Following the temporary closure of Stoke Ferry Post Office, we are delighted to let you know that we will be re-opening the branch on Tuesday 24 March 2020. This will be in a new location – Whittington Garage, Whittington, Kings Lynn, PE33 9TF, where it will be known Whittington Post Office.

Your new Post Office branch

Customers would access Post Office services at a low-screened, open-plan, modern serving point that’s part of the retail counter. Working with the postmaster, we’d adapt the current store layout, fixtures and fittings to accommodate the Post Office till if needed.

The branch will offer a wide range of Post Office products and services over longer opening hours, so customers can access their Post Office when it’s convenient. Customer satisfaction with local style branches stands at 96 per cent, and nearly 20 per cent of local branch customers visit outside traditional opening hours.

We have provided posters for display in the Whittington Garage to let customers know the good news. 

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.


What happens next

Thank you for your support in restoring the Post Office service to the local community in Stoke Ferry and Whittington.
