The Post Office have been modernising branches throughout the country and they are now planning to do the same with the branch in Sunniside.
There will be improvements to the service point and longer opening hours. However, the branch will no longer provide on-demand travel insurance or take payment by cheque. Most other services will remain unchanged.
Residents are being consulted on their views about the proposed changes. You can give feedback online at www.postofficeviews.co.uk. Click on the link about making comments on specific branch changes and then enter the unique code for the Sunniside branch 35732999.
The closing date for feedback is quite soon – 9th September.
