Councillor Liz Frost opens the new Post Office

We’re happy to report that at last Epsom has its much needed  Post Office back, although in a new location.

It was officially opened on 19th July by the Mayor, Councillor Liz Frost, (who is also our President at EETN) and also on hand at the ceremony was the new Postmaster Nidhi Prashar and Network Operations Advisor Sarah Cornish. The Post Office is located temporarily in Epsom Town Hall in The Parade, just three minutes walk from the old Post Office.  Opening hours are MondayFriday 9am-5pm.   So it’s open for business and waiting for customers and the friendly cashiers would love you to help spread the word.  Hooray say all of us!
