Plans for a mobile post office service have been announced for Little Paxton.

The village’s Post Office branch, based at The Anchor, in High Street, closed temporarily in August due to the resignation of the postmaster after the pub was sold to a new owner.

The postmaster from Hemingford Grey Post Office currently operates a mobile service in the area and is willing to extend the service to Little Paxton.

Phillipa Newey, from the Post Office, said: “Since the branch closed, we’ve continued to look at options to enable us to restore local access to services. We are delighted to be able to offer a mobile van service for the benefit of the community.”

It is proposed that the mobile van service will visit the village hall car park, off High Street, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 2-4pm.
