Southwick PO grand opening

SOUTHWICK Square Post Office is being officially reopened on Saturday.

The post office has faced more than a year of problems but the refit is now complete and two VIP guests will perform the grand opening ceremony at 10am.

Residents were left reeling when the branch suddenly closed in October 2012.

A sign put up on the door told customers: “Due to unforeseen circumstances this branch is closed until further notice.”

It reopened under new management on Friday, October 12, 2012, but ongoing legal issues have meant staff working in difficult conditions for months.

Staff working behind the counter have been praised for their efforts throughout and for continuing their stalwart service.
