MP Lee Scott and Subpostmaster Raj Kumar have celebrated the opening of a new-look Post Office in Longwood Parade.

MP Lee Scott and Subpostmaster Raj Kumar open new-look Post Office in Longwood Parade.

The newly refurbished Post Office includes three serving positions and a new-style, open plan counter.

The branch is now open from Monday to Sunday 6.30am to 8pm - an increase of 48 hours a week.

Mr Scott, MP for Ilford North, said: “Everyone knows how important the Post Office is in our local communities and I am delighted to have the opportunity to officially open the new-look Longwood Parade Post Office.

“The modern premises and longer opening hours will be warmly welcomed by all residents who can now access Post Office services for longer seven days a week.”

Mr Kumar, who runs the branch, said the Post Office has been transformed.

“All the hard work has been worth it,” he said at last week’s event.

  • Most people who have been to this shop post office will likely confirm that it is far from a pleasant experience. If only Mr Kumar was nice, polite and downright rational. During my last encounter with Mr Kumar, he threatened to hit me and told me to get out of his shop... all for asking him to confirm whether or not my Amazon delivery had arrived.
