A REFURSBISHED Winchester post office is set to reopen on Friday.

Based in the Southern Co-operative, in Stoney Lane, Weeke, the branch has been shut since August 7.

When it reopens it will have two combi-counters – a post office terminal which sits alongside the shop’s retail till and offers most services.

The move is part of the Government’s £2 billion investment for the post office network, and it will be open for 65 extra hours a week.
