A POST office, which was trialled in a Penarth shop, will now be based there permanently.
In March 2021 a post office branch was trialled at SPAR on Brockhill Way in the Lavernock area of Penarth – offering basic mail and bill-payment services.
Following a review of the trial, the post office will be permanently based here – with services to expand, including banking services.
It will be open seven days a week, with opening times available at the bottom of this article.
Lavernock Post Office now offers the standard range of services that you normally get at a post office.
This includes Christmas stamps, Drop & Go for frequent senders and click and collect service to collect parcels from a range of companies. It also includes:
• Mailing services;
• Withdrawals,deposits and payments. This includes post office card accounts, personal and business banking, enveloped cheque deposits, barcoded deposit slips, postal orders, Moneygram, automated bill payments and key recharging;
• Rod fishing licences;
• Travel insurance referrals;
• Mobile top-ups and e-vouchers.
