The Post Office has announced plans to refurbish its Littleport branch.
And officials say that the revamped branch, which is based in McColl’s, in Main Street, will also have extended opening hours that will see it operating seven days a week.
The refurbishment works are scheduled to take place from Saturday, November 1, and will re-open at 1pm on Thursday, November 13. The retail side of McColl’s will remain open throughout.
When complete, the modernised branch will featured two screened serving positions and a combi-counter, where customers can access Post Office services outside opening hours.
The Post Office says the improvements will keep the branch open for an extra 56 hours and 30 minutes each week.
While the work is taking place, residents are being directed to use services in Ely and Little Downham.
Kevin Shepherd, post office area manager, said: “We know how important Post Office services are to residents in the Ely area and we are confident that this vibrant modern post office, at the heart of the community, will be popular.
“The modernisation is part of a major Government investment programme enabling us to continue investing in the post office network and to map out a bold growth strategy to the end of the decade.”
