A post office has officially relocated after a previous town centre branch closed last month.
The temporary branch opened its doors to the public on Monday, January 11, at the Town Hall in Broad Street.
Bungay Town Council has worked to ensure a post office remains in the town following the closure of the branch inside McColl's, on St Mary's Street, shortly before Christmas.
Former McColl's post office manager Fiona Bale will oversee the new site while discussions over a permanent base and manager continue, with applications expected to take several months to conclude.
Residents have been reassured they can continue to rely on the Post Office to collect pensions and pay their utility bills, as well as offering letter and parcel services.
