Post Office services to return to village

by Tom Martin (January 2021)

A local post office will return to Up Holland later this month, as well as a new cafe and community space once Covid restrictions are lifted.

Post Office services will be restored to Up Holland on Thursday 21st January at 1pm at Church of St Thomas the Martyr, Church Street.

The previous Up Holland Post Office closed in July 2015 and now there is the opportunity to provide a post office within the church. 

A café and community space will also open at the church as soon as Covid-19 restrictions allow.

The opening hours for Up Holland Post Office will be Monday to Friday: 9am – 5.30pm; Saturday: 9am – 5pm.

This is more than 50 hours of Post Office service a week for the convenience of customers.

David Hunt, Post Office Network Provision Lead, said: “We are delighted to be restoring Post Office service to Up Holland as we know how important a Post Office is to a community. We thank the Church of St Thomas the Martyr for providing this branch as part of an exciting community initiative of a café and community space.”

The new branch offers customers a wide range of post office services, from posting letters and parcels to collecting and returning online shopping items. Customers can also take advantage of a wide range of banking services including cash withdrawals and balance enquiries for customers of all the main UK banks.

As we are keen to restore services to those communities as soon as possible, we have decided to go ahead with our plans. However, we would welcome suggestions about access into and within the premises.

Feedback will close on 5 February 2021. Customers can share their views during the consultation online at with the branch code 324406.

Submissions can also be made via email to, by post to Freepost YOUR COMMENTS, or by telephone 03452 66 01 15 or Textphone 03457 22 33 55.
