Re: Disgusted at proposals to close Post Office

I'm disappointed at the closure too - I'm sure the Stubshaw post office is an important focus for the local community. However, I understand the basic problem is that there isn't enough business to make all our local post offices viable. I'm pleased to see that the Bamfurlong post office is due to re-open - it could be that saving the Stubshaw one might lead to the closure of this one, which would be worse for their community. Anyway, it's good to see that you are taking the trouble to support the Stubshaw office - I agree about the helpfulness of the Stubshaw Cross postmaster.

Re: Disgusted at proposals to close Post Office

I for one think staff at both post offices are a waste of space.

They dont smile and they make me feel unwelcome.

What a sad state our post offices afre in today.

Close them both down. Immediately

Close them down because they dont smile at you?
