The post office in Abbey Wood is set to close in the New Year.

This comes after the landlord of the space in Abbey Wood Road has given notice that there are plans to redevelop that site.

The post office will be open over the Christmas period but will permanently close on January 16.

It has been closed temporarily since November 16 but will re-open for the festive period.

A Post Office spokesman said: "We will continue to look for a long-term replacement for the branch and will consider all options for providing post office services in the area.

"We would like to apologise for the inconvenience this unavoidable temporary closure will cause and hope that our customers will continue to use Post Office services."
