Village Post Office Closure?
It’s good to report that recent concerns about potential closure of the local post office have gone away for the time being. A Village Resident wrote about the problem to MP Andrew Lansley and this is the gist of his reply. “I am writing to advise that further to my letter dated 7th June, I have now received a response from the Post Office Ltd to the enquiry I made on your behalf regarding any changes to Haslingfield Post Office. The Post Office have advised that they are not currently aware of any plans to change the way that Haslingfield Post Office is operated. They have offered their assurances that the local community would be notified if there were any plans to change this. Post Office Ltd have also informed me that changes through the national three year investment programme are being implemented on a voluntary basis and consequently, no subpostmaster would be forced to convert to a new operating model unless they wished to do so”. Many thanks to ‘Village Resident’
