Local weather report

Rocklands automatic weather station is reporting that it's a deliciously balmy, fairly sunny summer's morning here in the village. The temperature is 20.1°C and there's a light easterly breeze.

Post Office

We have a full Post Office counter service available - about the only thing we can't do is passports. The Post Office keeps the same hours as the Shop, even Sundays! Deal with your post, despatch parcels, buy stamps for the birthday cards you just bought, use the Drop & Go service, buy euros and US dollars or order other currencies or withdraw cash to spend in the shop or pub. We're there to help.

Coronavirus Pandemic

If you can spare some time to help keep us open, please drop us a line on 01953 483855 or speak to any of our friendly team.

Cash deposit facility

We have a new cash deposit facility at the Post Office. Customers can pay cash into their accounts at the following banks: Bank of Ireland, Clydesdale Bank, Lloyds Bank, Halifax, NatWest, RBS, Ulster Bank and Yorkshire Bank. You just need to bring a valid paying-in slip and the cash. We're going to introduce more banks that you can use this facility with soon. Please click here to check out a great article about little-known ways to bank at the post office.

Local produce and suppliers

We aim to source high quality local products wherever possible, including DJ Barnard’s Meats, ice cream and lollies from Dann's Farm, fresh bread from Hingham Bakery and a selection of plants from Walnut Tree Nursery Garden. Our customers benefit from fresher products with lower carbon footprints that directly support our local enterprises and the wider community.
