Congresbury Post Office has re-opened after a full refurbishment of the store by the new postmaster, Ashish Bhoyar.

The premises in The Precinct, Brinsea Road, underwent a two-week refit.

The modernised Post Office and store will now be open for 46 hours of Post Office services a week.

The previous postmaster, Jagtar Seehra, and his wife Sukhvinder, who had run their village Post Office for nearly 35 years, retired.

Congresbury Post Office is now a new-style local branch with Post Office services provided alongside the retail counter.

The opening hours of this store is Monday - Friday 9am - 5.30pm; Saturday: 9am – 1pm. This means that the branch no longer closes at lunchtime.

Scott Lacey, Post Office network lead, said: “We are delighted to have a new Postmaster for Congresbury after the retirement of the popular, long-serving postmaster.
