Local MP keeps Post Office open
Local residents were dismayed, with this facility being a life line for many.
Johnny Mercer, who has been in discussions with both Royal Mail nationally and the landlord of the shop, acknowledged this was sad news but said: “I can now confirm that Royal Mail can still operate the Post Office on this site provided a Postmaster can be found. The landlord has also had many expressions of interest in running the shop and I very much expect one of these will be suitable.”
He further commented “no matter what happens politically either in this city or nationally, my focus has and will always been delivering for local residents on issues like this.
