WITCHFORD post office is in the running for an award in a competition to find the best post offices in the UK.

The branch at Main Street has been short-listed in the category for best rural Post Office in the south east.

The awards aim to recognise the hard work and community spirit of people working in Post Offices and there are prizes for the best rural, town and city, and directly managed branches. There are also three special award categories for subpostmasters and their teams who do 'that little bit extra' to offer customers a great service.

A Post Office spokesperson said: "Post Office branches are at the heart of communities across the country. The awards are an opportunity for customers to tell us which branches are the very best.

"It is also an opportunity for us to reward the people who give that bit more and make their branches great places for customers to visit."

Regional winners and runners up in the south east will be announced on Monday with national winners announced on November 16 at an awards ceremony in central London.
