A Norfolk town has had its Post Office restored through a temporary mobile service.

The branch in Watton closed its doors on May 31 when the premises were withdrawn for Post Office use at short notice.

The mobile service started on Thursday and will be operated by Rob and Karen Williams, who run Barnham Broom Post Office.

The service will be held at Watton Library car park between 1.30pm and 3.30pm on Thursdays.

Matt Hatfull, Post Office area network change manager, said: “We understand and appreciate how much communities rely on our services and we apologise for any inconvenience caused by this temporary closure. We are delighted to be able to restore a temporary service to Watton, whilst we seek a permanent solution. Alternative branches in the area also include Carbrooke, Shipdham, Saham Toney and Thompson branches.”
