A new Post Office branch has opened in Hornchurch Road.

Open since Monday (September 6), Hylands Post Office boasts banking facilities on top of typically-offered postal services.

Post Office network provision lead, Sam Coe, is "confident" this new branch will enhance provision in the Hornchurch area.

Part of a network-wide modernisation programme, the branch at 154 Hornchurch Road will be open six days a week (between 9am to 5pm on weekdays).

There will be a reduced 9am to 2pm service on Saturdays.

Another new Post Office is coming to Gidea Park on September 24.

Located in 238-240 Main Road, this facility will be open seven days a week.

This flurry of openings came after the Rush Green branch was saved at the final hour by a change of heart from the resigning postmaster.
