MP celebrates victory in Kendal Post Office campaign

March 26, 2019 11:59 AM

Tim with local councillors Eamonn Hennessey, Adam Edwards, Douglas Rathbone and Julia Dunlop at the birdcage in KendalCommenting on the news that post office bosses have scrapped plans to close Kendal's main post office and move it to the WHSmith store, local MP Tim said:

"This is a massive victory for local residents.

"Out of the hundreds of times they've put forward plans to close post offices across the country, this is only the second time that Post Office Ltd have backed down.

"That's testament to everyone who signed our petition and backed our community campaign and is a great reminder of what we can achieve when we come together and take on industry bosses."
