Michael Fabricant is calling on residents of Kings Bromley in Staffordshire
to contact Royal Mail if they don’t want the Post Office in Kings Bromley
permanently closed. The Post Office in Alrewas Road, Kings Bromley closed
some months ago on a "temporary" basis. But Royal Mail now say that if
circumstances and needs in the village have not changed, they will deem the
closure as permanent. And that could make the re-opening of any post office
in the village more difficult in the future.
"I have already contacted the Parish Council about this, but I want local
residents to contact Royal Mail setting out their need for a post office in
Kings Bromley. The Royal Mail have said they are interested to know whether
there is a new shop, garage, or pub which might offer post office services
or whether through lack of any new shops, garages or pubs there remains a
real need for the post office to be re-opened. The more people who write
stating the need for the post office, the better" says Michael Fabricant.
"And if anyone is prepared to run the post office, the should also write in
Letters need to be sent to:
Rural Transfer Advisor
National Consultation Team
The Post Office Limited
PO Box 2060
Michael added "I know of some villages where local people volunteer and set
up a rota running the local post office and I wonder whether this is
something people in Kings Bromley might wish to consider."
