St Peters Post Office has opened today (March 16) at a new location – St Peters Store, 27 Beacon Road, Broadstairs, restoring service to the community.
The opening hours are Monday – Saturday; 8am – 8pm; Sunday: 8am – 7.30pm.
This offers 83 hours and 30 minutes of Post Office service a week for the convenience of customers.
A Post Office counter is alongside the retail counter of the convenience store.
The previous branch at 12 High Street, St Peters, CT10 2TQ, closed in March 2020.
Post Office Provision Lead, Emily Clive, said: “We are delighted to have restored Post Office services to this area of Reading. St Peters Post Office is open daily, making it very easy to visit.”
Are you sure that’s St Peter’s Broadstairs?

Where was that picture taken?
For those wondering, it’s in the old video shop in Beacon Road at the junction with Westover Road.
‘We are delighted to have restored services to this part of Reading’! Really?
It is good news for the residents of St. Peter’s and Beacon Road Ward who have been without a post office for two years and longer when the Reading Street one closed. As the article says the St. Peter’s High Street one closed during lockdown.
Years ago this shop was a Co-op, then a Video store but has been a busy corner shop for some years now. A very welcome addition to the area.
Why did the High St shop shut? It was only recently changed to a Post Office a few years back?
The woman who was in charge had health issues and had to self-isolate during lockdown. The business had been up for sale but the process was stalled by lockdown and, I understand, the sale didn’t go though. The Reading Street shop closed some years ago so when the St Peter’s High Street one went the nearest one was Holly Lane in Cliftonville or Payden’s at the Broadway.
