Post office chiefs agree to review closure decisions - Farron issues cautious welcome

May 13, 2008 3:00 PM

Local MP Tim Farron has issued a cautious welcome as Post Office bosses have told local campaigners that the decision to close their branches will be reviewed.

Mr Farron arranged for senior Post Office officials to meet with representatives of Beetham, Greenodd and Leven Valley post offices on Wednesday 7th May. At those meetings, local representatives were given cause for cautious optimism by the assurances to review the closure decisions made by Richard Lynds from Post Office Limited's Network Change Team.

Tim Farron said:

"It is too early to get our hopes up, but it's clear that local campaigners in Beetham, Greenodd and Leven Valley have made a real impact on Post Office Ltd.

"We must keep up the fight over the next few weeks before the consultation period closes."
