Temporary postmaster Paul said, “I’m very excited to have re-opened the branch at Seaside and re-instate Post Office services to the local area which I intend to continue until a permanent solution for the branch is found.

“The Post Office plays a crucial role in the community and provides much needed services for personal and business customers, especially in areas such as banking where the Post Office has replaced many banks that have withdrawn their branches”.

“I’m looking forward to welcoming former and new customers to the branch and getting involved in the local community.”

The branch is open 8.30am-6pm Monday to Friday and 9am-1pm on Saturday.
