The nearest alternative Post Offices are: Welton Post Office, 1 Ryland Road, Welton, Lincoln, LN2 3LU and Middle Rasen Post Office, Gainsborough Road, Middle Rasen, Market Rasen, LN8 3JS

Post Office local is a new concept for delivering Post Office services and the new Normanby by Spital Post Office will have a Post Office serving point at the retail counter where Post Office products and services will be available alongside retail transactions throughout shop opening hours.

Post Office customers will benefit from opening hours being extended - the new branch will be open 7.30am to 7.30pm Monday to Friday; 8.30am to 7.30pm Saturday and 9am to 4pm on Sunday.

Post Office Area Manager Lesley Frankland said: “We understand how important having a Post Office is to residents in Normanby by Spital and we are confident that this new modern Post Office service will meet the needs of the local community and secure services for the future.

“This modernisation is part of a major investment programme, the largest in the history of the Post Office and marks a commitment to no more branch closure programmes.”
