Stewart Jackson MP visit provides some festive cheer as Post Office team prepare for the busy Christmas period

Stewart Jackson, MP for Peterborough, visited the team at re-located Peterborough Post Office today to provide some festive cheer and see how preparations are going in the build-up to Christmas – the busiest time of year for Post Office branches across the UK.

Since September Peterborough Post Office has been located within the WHSmith store at 32-36 Bridge Street, Peterborough, PE1 1DP. The same full range of services are available as before.

The new branch is now open seven days a week Monday to Saturday: 9am – 5.30pm and Sunday: 10.30am – 2.30pm. This is an extra nine hours a week including Sunday, plus Saturday afternoon. This makes it more convenient for customers to visit all year round and especially at Christmas.

Post Office services are provided from four serving positions – one full screened and three open-plan. There are also two self-service kiosks.

Stewart Jackson MP for Peterborough, said:

“It was fantastic to meet the team at Peterborough Post Office, they provide such a valuable service to the Peterborough community. I was so impressed by their dedication and hard work.”

Benita Gould, Branch Manager at Peterborough Post Office said:

“Christmas is our busiest time of the year, the team were delighted that Stewart Jackson took time out from his busy schedule to support us and recognise the valuable service we provide.

“We have settled in well and we are now open seven days a week all year round. This makes it far easier for customers to visit us. As we are in the heart of the shopping area, people can now do their Christmas shopping and quickly pop in, wrap up their parcels and cards to send to family and friends.

Peterborough Post Office will be delighted to welcome customers to their modern new-look Post Office this Christmas. Whether sending Christmas gifts by Special Delivery, making online banking cash deposits and withdrawals or ordering Travel money for a festive break, you will receive a warm welcome at Peterborough Post Office this festive period.
