Post office in Hilperton

This week I cut the ribbon to mark the official opening of the brand-new post office in Hilperton which will offer services from a low-screened and open planned counter at Richardson’s Budgens, 9 Hackett Place.

The Post Office will be a great asset to all the community in Hilperton. The fact that the branch is open seven days a week will be very convenient for local residents and businesses. Post offices are vital for all ages and also help to tackle loneliness and rural isolation.

Services at this new post office will be available seven days a week. Monday to Saturday: 7am to 10pm; Sunday: 10am to 4pm. This offers customers an impressive 96 hours of Post Office service a week.

It was great to join Mark Richardson who is the new Hilperton Postmaster and owner of the Budgens store, we are both excited and pleased with how busy the branch has already been since it opened.

With over 11,500 branches, the Post Office network is the biggest retail network in the UK, with more branches than all the banks and building societies combined.
