A POPULAR village post office was given the stamp of approval by residents after a complete refurb.

Wolviston Post Office has had an interior revamp and had an old stock room converted into an area where staff can speak to people and offer new product services on a one-to-one basis instead of just through the glass at the counter.

Residents can also now buy or renew tax at the post office as well as purchasing travel insurance and changing currency.

The refurb is part of the Post Office’s national fit-out and refurbishment framework.

Owners Graeme and Pauline Hedley, both 57, are delighted with the new-look.

Pauline, a mum-of-two, said: “We are over the moon, it looks fantastic.

“It retains the village community feel which was vital, but we now offer more product services as well as having our new conversation area.

“If anyone wants to talk about the services we now have somewhere to go instead of just talking through the glass while people are stood in the queue behind you.”

Wolviston’s oldest resident and regular at the post office, Herbert Rhodes, 95, cut the ribbon to officially open the new-look post office earlier this week. He was joined by staff and local residents at the launch.
