Five Ash Down Post Office is extending its opening hours from Monday, April 30.
From that date the Post Office counter will be open for the same hours as the rest of the shop, from 7am until 5.30pm.
On Saturdays the Post Office and shop are open from 9am to 12.30pm and on Sunday, from 8am until 11a.
Kim Dopson, who runs the shop with her mother-in-law Maggie Dopson said the shop had always opened from 7am and it made sense for the Post Office, which currently opens later, to be open the same hours.
Now they have been given permission to extend the hours.
