HARTFORD Post Office has reopened at its new location more than 12 months after it was forced to close.

The new branch is located at A&R Minimarket in Greenbank Lane.

It will be open from Monday to Friday, 9am until 6.30pm, Saturdays from 10am until 6.30pm and Sundays from 11am until 4pm.

The previous branch at The Green closed in April 2021 due to the resignation of the postmaster.
