Plans to refurbish Mexborough’s main post office and extend its weekend opening hours have been welcomed.

The branch, on Main Street, is being transformed into a “new-style open-plan branch.”

The new look office will have five serving positions and will open until 5.30pm on a Saturday. Currently it closes at 12.30pm.

Doncaster North MP and Labour leader Ed Miliband said: “The post office is a vital hub for the community in Mexborough and I’m confident the improvements will be welcomed by people in the area.”

Post Office area manager Lesley Frankland added: “Our aim is to create a more modern and convenient retail experience.”
