The news follows the expected closure of Hatfield Post Office in December – if another postmaster cannot be found – as the town centre regeneration gets underway.

This means surrounding Post Offices, such as Brookmans Park, Hatfield Town Centre, Birchwood and Hatfield South, can be used for Welham Green residents in the meantime.

A Post Office spokeswoman, said: “North Mymms Post Office is currently closed for operational reasons. We are working hard to restore Post Office service to the area as soon as possible as we know how important a Post Office is to a community.”

And have told The Welwyn Hatfield Times, the Hilltop area regeneration at High View will be done with minimal disruption to businesses so the Martin’s newsagent and Post Office in Hatfield South can remain open.

North Mymms Post Office was also contacted by the Welwyn Hatfield Times but has not responded so far.
