The parcel postbox comes to Hexham

For the first time in its 160 year history the Royal Mail has introduced a change to the way we use postboxes. Parcel postboxes will allow small businesses and marketplace sellers to post pre-paid parcels through postboxes in the same way they currently post letters. The postboxes will be secure, making it safe and convenient for businesses to use. Haugh Lane Industrial Estate in Hexham will be one of the first places in the country to have a parcel postbox, which is great news for businesses in the town.

Parcel postboxes are a great initiative, and I have no doubt that the new Hexham postbox will be a real benefit to our local small businesses.
