A Post Office has announced it will relocate to a new site in a Buckinghamshire town.

The Great Hivings Post Office in Chesham announced it will relocate to a new site, but only next door.

Currently, the Post Office is located at 11 Greenway Parade.

Now the new location has been confirmed at the neighbouring Londis at 7 Greenway Parade, which is run by the Postmaster.

Plans for the move are currently being finalised and the date will be announced soon. 

A Post Office spokesperson said the reason for the move is because the Postmaster wants to relocate it “into his existing convenience store.”

They said: “The postmaster firmly believes that the move would help secure continued access to Post Office services locally, and support the viability of their business.

“There will be two serving positions - one screened and a Post Office serving point at the retail counter.”

The Post Office will continue to offer the same range of products and services. 

The opening hours will remain as Monday to Friday 9am to 5.30pm, Saturday 9am to 1pm and closed on Sundays.
