The Government of the UK is asking for advice on what do do about the Post Offices and it wants to know what you think before Thursday. There are plans to close several thousand branches.
Here are some news reports:
SundayMirror.co.uk – News – ‘MORE POS TO CLOSE’
Newbury Today | Council slams Post Office closures
Denbighshire Free Press News – Post office supporters gather
As you can see I have had to find some unusual news sources as most of the mainstream press is not reporting on this deadline.
My own view is that more creativity in finding new forms of income for Post Offices is needed. Allowing more Government services to take place there is one good idea. I found this idea from one of the links above interesting:
…the Ibex Inn in Chaddleworth allows customers to send mail and pay bills while having a pint.
The only danger with this is that after a few drinks one might find oneself sending all sorts of ill-advised letters that one might not have sent had one not had those aforementioned drinks.
Other essential resources:
The ‘Don’t close the Post Office‘ song and video by JonnyB.
Actually that is the only one.
