At Holy Cross Church in Goodnestone, near Canterbury, a new Post Office has been opened to replace the closure of the other one recently.
Speaking after the opening ceremony, the Bishop of Dover, the Right Reverend Trevor Willmott commented: "This is a wonderful example of volunteers, and the community, the church and a national service coming together to provide a service for local community. I hope there will be many more examples in the future."
The post office which is situated in the west end of the church will provide the full range of post office services and will open two mornings a week. There are plans for coffee mornings and mini farmers' market to operate at the same time. Holy Cross Church will continue as a place of worship, with a normal schedule of weekly services.
