On 7th January, Southgate Post Office became the first in Crawley to open as a new-style local branch.
Councillor Karl Williamson said, "After visiting the new-style store, myself and fellow Southgate Councillors are very pleased that the Post Office Group have decided to undertake this modernisation investment in its Post Office on Southgate Parade.
This means that busy Southgate residents will be able to enjoy longer opening hours in a more modern retail environment. Southgate's Post Office will be the first in Crawley to have opening times from 6am Monday - Saturday and we also welcome the fact that there will be limited opening hours on a Sunday from 7am.
We support the Post Office's decision to modernise and enhance its levels of customer service to Southgate residents and hope this is rolled out further across Crawley."
