Caistor's post office to be upgraded to a 'main branch'
CAISTOR residents really have something to write home about.
Not only have fears that the town's post office could close proved unfounded, but it has now been announced that it will be upgraded to "main branch" as part of a national restructuring programme.
The works, which the Post Office estimates will take a week, will start in April and include plans to modernise the counters and other fittings.
Before 2015, the Post Office nationally plans to introduce around 4,000 new main branches and around 2,000 local branches in the UK.

Caistor Postmaster Martin Sizer said: "We are delighted that we are to become a main post office.
"It will mean more investment in us as a business by the Post Office and we shall have more products to sell.
"Converting to the main model and to more of an open plan shop floor is one feature of our alterations and when we reopen customers will see the benefits straight away."
All main post offices will have a broader range of Post Office products and at Caistor the change will also bring additional operating hours.
From April, the post office will be open from 8.30am to 6pm Monday to Friday. On Saturdays, the post office will open at 9am and close at 5.30pm.
The development is a further boost for Caistor business after the successful Towncape Heritage Scheme, building of the new Lincolnshire Co-operative Store, a gold award in East Midlands In Bloom and opening of the Arts And Heritage Centre.
"It really is further positive news for the town as a whole and something for us and local people to feel upbeat about," added Mr Sizer.
