STALWART staff at Southwick post office officially opened the new shop on Saturday.
Linda Burton, who has worked behind the counter for 25 years, and Vi Wilkinson, who has been there 10 years, cut the ribbon to open the post office in Southwick Square.
They were presented with flowers by postmaster Sameer Philips, who said they were his VIPs and without them, the post office would have been shut a long time ago.
“Without them, I couldn’t have run the post office and I really owe them all my life,” he added.
