A POST OFFICE in Deighton has shut its doors.
But postal bosses hope to re-open a service in the area.
The closure of the office at Keldregate comes after its sub-postmaster resigned.
Customers are now being asked to use other post offices in the area.
Sheepridge Post Office at Sheepridge Road, Bradley Post Office at Brooks Yard and Fartown Post Office at Fartown Green Road are among those closest.
Liz Morgan, field change advisor for Post Offices Ltd, said: “We apologise for the inconvenience this temporary closure is undoubtedly causing, but we are committed to maintaining a presence in the Deighton community.”
A Post Office spokesman said the Deighton premises would no longer be available for use as a post office, as they are not owned by the company, but he hoped the service would be restored once suitable premises were found.
