Education Secretary opens Froxfield Branch
It’s great news for the people of Froxfield as Education Secretary Damian Hinds “cut the ribbon” at the official opening of their new Post Office in his East Hampshire constituency with new Postmaster Howard Bevis.
The branch near Petersfield had been a part-time Post Office operating at Froxfield Stores two mornings a week with a temporary Postmaster. Mr Bevis, who has owned Froxfield Stores for ten years, is now the Post Office operator too and the community is now benefiting from a full-time Post Office that is open seven days a week!
Here you’ll see the Education Secretary Rt Hon Damian Hinds is cutting the ribbon with new Postmaster Howard Bevis, wife Charlotte, daughter Eleanor and mother-in-law Jan. He said: “I’m delighted that Howard has become Postmaster and is able to provide this important service for Froxfield. The extended opening hours and range of banking services means that this Post Office service will be a great help to the local community.”
The new opening hours mean that the Post Office is open an extra 66 hours a week making a real difference to customers!
