A town Post Office has reopened after being closed for most of January while a full refurbishment was carried out.

The office on New Road in North Walsham has been modernised to enhance its retail offering, with new additional counters for shop sales.

The office's four postal counters remain in place.

Printing, photocopying and passport photos services are now available at the branch and it will also stock a selection of greetings cards, helium balloons, giftware and stationery.

During the three week closure, the post office ran a mobile service alongside an outreach service at St Nicholas church hall to continue its service.
