Did you know that there is a Post Office in Dibden ?

Post OfficeCouncillor Chris Harrison is encouraging local residents to use the facility which was facilitated by Hythe and Dibden Parish Council following the Post Offices’ decision to close the Dibden Post Office. At a time when post offices and other public facilities are being closed down it’s important to make use of the ones that are left in order to retain their viability and to ensure that they are available for the benefit of future generations.

The Post Office is located within the Clayfield Sports Centre off Claypits Lane in Dibden and is open On Mondays and Wednesdays from 9am to 12 noon and on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 1pm and 4pm.

Apart from all those who walk to the Post Office – it is also very popular with people who wish to drive there and park immediately outside – particularly useful when posting heavy parcels, etc..
