Becontree Avenue Post Office in Becontree Avenue, Dagenham was relocated to the newly refurbished unit next door, Bodson Wine Store.

The branch, which will open almost 50 hours longer a week, was officially opened on Friday with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

Subpostmaster Mr Ganesh Balasubramaniam was joined by ward councillors Evelyn Carpenter and James Ogungbose.

Cllr Carpenter said: “I am delighted to be opening this relocated post office with impressively long opening hours. I am confident the improvements will be warmly welcomed by local residents and businesses.”

The changes, which include an a more open-plan retail look, are part of a major investment programme to convert the Post Office network to new-style branches.
