A Cambridge Post Office will be reopening its doors later this month. The branch, based at the University of Cambridge's West Hub, confirmed the news in a letter sent to customers.

The venue first opened in September 2022 and is one of many in and around the city centre. However, the branch has been shut since the beginning of March, with the company saying the closure was in place until further notice.

The company have now said that the branch will be open as normal on Tuesday, July 23. Once it has reopened, it will be available from 9.30am to 4pm Monday to Friday.
