DURING THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK some temporary arrangements were made so that there could still be a Post Office in the village each week. One of their vans visited whilst the church remained closed - but from Friday 2nd October the Seward Room at the church will be available again and so the temporary mobile van service arranged by the Parish Council will cease. There will need to be some new arrangements for the weekly visits (9.30-11.30am every Friday): people will need to follow the signage, wear a mask, use the hand sanitiser and note that only one person can be served (and one waiting by the Seward Room door) at a time. It will be Post Office only (no sales, no tea/coffee) and the toilets will not be available.
The Post Office is normally open on Fridays from 9.30am to 11.30am in the Seward Room in St. Mary's church.
There is usually free tea, coffee & biscuits, no queuing and a chance to meet others for sociable chats.
The Post Office provides a wide range of sevices: posting letters and all types of parcels, car tax, banking etc
Sometimes local and other produce is also available: Buriton tea towels; local meat, sausages etc; and even Olive Oil... If you have anything you would like to sell, why not give it a try?
