Stamp of approval in Sleights

After being lost in the post for over a year the village of Sleights has got mail again.

A post office facility will be re-launched next Thursday after the old branch on Coach Road closed down.

The new post office will be based in the Spar shop across the road and will operate during the stores normal opening times, 7am-10pm seven days a week.

It will actually be open 59 hours a week more than the previous post office service.

Customers will be able to access Post Office and mails services, including special delivery, local collect, home shopping returns, online banking cash deposits and withdrawals.

Adrian Wales, Regional Manager said: “We know how important Post Office services are to residents in Whitby and we are confident that this vibrant new-style Post Office at the heart of the community will be popular.”

Other services include sending funds abroad, paying bills and travel money.
