Post Office Closure

A couple of quick updates on the possible closure of Beeston’s main Post Office.

The issue was debated at the Council on 2nd March. There’s a report¬†from Nottingham Evening Post. Over 3,900 signatures in the end for the petition.

If you want to learn more about how the Post Office will go about its forthcoming consultation on the planned closure you can read information at Citizen’s Advice and at the Post Office’s own corporate site.

Needless to say the Green Party are against the plans and we’ll keep you posted (sorry about the pun).

Council to debate Beeston Post Office closure

Broxtowe Borough council will debate the proposed closure of Beeston Post Office at tonight’s council meeting (2nd March, 7pm). A petition will be formally presented to the council members as over 1,000 people have signed. Well done to local councillor, Janet Patrick (Beeston West), who has been leading on this.

Needless to say the Green Party is wholly opposed to this planned closure. It is essential for a town the size of Beeston to have a main, Crown post office, with all its facilities. We do not believe that replacing this with some kind of franchised service in one of the local supermarkets is at all adequate. Post offices are part of the community and provide a valuable service to everyone.
