​​​​​​The dates for the new post office in Diss opening and the old one closing have been revealed.

The move, which will see the service leave its current location where it has been in for 70 years, was decided after public consultations and due to the short-term contract on the site ending soon.

The current branch in Market Place will be closing on Friday, July 12, at 5.30pm and its new location, at 35e Mere Street, will open on July 16, at 1pm.
