Newton PO set for return

NEWTON STEWART Post Office is getting back into action after being forced to close as the Coronavirus crisis broke. The shut-down, which attracted much sympathy over potential health issues, caused problems for pensioners trying to access their cash and for people who use pre-payment cards for utility bills which could be topped up only at Post Offices. An announcement on the Gifts'n'Things Facebook page says the Victoria Street shop will reopen for business next week with strict social-distancing measures in place. "We are extremely happy to say that we will be reopening on Monday 27th April on a reduced-hours basis. "Our hours will be Monday-Thursday 9am – 2pm. "There will be a maximum of 4 people allowed in the building at one time. This is to ensure that social distancing can occur effectively. "When you come in, please make sure you stick to social distancing rules. There will be markers on the floor to help you! "We hope to resume normal trading hours as soon as it is safe to do so." The town had been temporarily served by a mobile Post Office.
