A new-look Post Office in Pateley Bridge will be open for business next Friday (26 May).

The service, which has moved to The Dales Market Corner, Bridgehouse Gate, will officially open at 1pm.

The current Post Office, based at 21 High Street, will close at 5.30pm next Wednesday (24 May).

During this short period of closure before the new branch is operational services can be accessed from any convenient branch, including in Ripon and Harrogate.

The new Post Office, complete with an open-plan space, will operate seven days a week.

Suzanne Richardson, regional network manager said: “We are making it easier for customers to get their cash, send and collect their mail and do their banking because we know how important these services are to local residents.

“We are confident that this vibrant new-style Post Office at the heart of the local community will meet customer needs.

“This modernisation is part of a major investment programme, the largest in the history of the Post Office.”
