CLOSURE OF KENDAL POST OFFICE ‘WOULD BE A TRAGEDY’ – MP

October 15, 2018 10:29 AM

South Lakes MP Tim Farron has reacted with horror to the news that the town's post office is set to be closed and relocated into the WHSmith store.

Post Office Ltd today announced the plan to close the post office during 2019.

Tim said: "This is devasting news for Kendal. Given the much smaller size of the WHSmith store, it's hard to see how this won't be a serious downgrade to the services available to local people.

"We demand better for local residents. Having lost many rural post office branches over the last 20 years, the one service we could reasonably have expected to be safe is our area's main post office.

"That's why I am launching a campaign to save Kendal Post Office. We have shown when we stand together as a community we can save local services - and we now need to stand together as a community again."
