The branch will close for refurbishment on Tuesday, January 11, at 5.30pm for the work to be carried out.

The Post Office service point, offering selected services, will be open Monday to Friday from 6am–5.30pm; Saturdays from 6am–3pm; and Sundays 7am–1pm.
This adds up to an extra 26 hours and 30 minutes of Post Office service a week.

While the branch is closed customers are asked to use Boxmoor Post Office in St Johns Road, or Hemel Hempstead Post Office in the Marlowes.
