Shailesh Vara MP for North West Cambridgeshire officially opened the brand new Church Drive Post Office in Orton Waterville, East England.
Jaspal Singh, said: “Opening a Post Office is a fantastic way to mark the 25th anniversary of our family running this store. We were encouraged by the local community to apply for a Post Office as we are at the heart of the village.

Shailesh Vara MP, said: “This is great news for Orton Waterville and I want to thank the Singh family for deciding to take on a Post Office. Offering a service seven days a week from early until late will really benefit residents and local businesses, providing access to a wide range of Post Office services including banking transactions.”
Orton Waterville councillor Julie Howell was also in attendance at the big community celebration. The new branch joins Matley and Orton Longueville in bringing vital services to the area.
