A NEW Post Office branch in Ringwood will allow residents to carry out their banking while posting letters.

The branch has opened at Central Convenience Stores in Parsonage Barn Lane, and will be open seven days a week from 6am to 10pm, with the usual array of postal services.

Customers will also be able to access their bank accounts to pay bills, make withdrawals and exchange currency.

Lisa Jordan, the firm's network operations manager, said: “We want to make it as easy as possible for customers to pay their bills, withdraw cash from their bank accounts, and send and collect their mail at a time and place that suits them best.

"We know how important our services are to customers, and are confident that this brand new Post Office alongside the other branches in the area at Ringwood and Poulner, will ensure that people in this area of Ringwood have easy access to our services."
