Post Office Closure

Here are the email addresses of the people to write to regarding Post Office status.  Basically we want people to write to all below about why they want to retain a “community status” Post Office in Co’path – our geographical situation hasn’t changed; we still qualify for this status and it’s a bereavement that’s meant the shop and P.O. will close so they should be sympathetic.  Running any type of shop and P.O. without the certainty of covering partial employment of a postmistress/master ( i.e. the £12k community status payment) makes running a local facility very difficult.  Please say what the PO means to you – anything from parcels, returns, stamps, pensions, electricity top ups etc etc.  How often do you use it etc.  Important that we don’t send loads of identical letters.  We will post a proforma in due course when we have it but PLEASE add personal details/ experiences.  Email addresses are:
john.lamont.mp@parliament.uk
Paul.Wheelhouse.msp@parliament.scot
rachael.hamilton.msp@parliament.scot
comments@postoffice.co.uk
The latter is the public comments mail box for the Post Office in this area.  All others are MP/MSPs.  Please also copy in JFullarton@scotborders.gov.uk and Helen.Laing@scotborders.gov.uk plus Mark.Rowley@scotborders.gov.uk
We will put these details on notice boards over next couple of days.  Many thanks to so many who volunteered and attended last night’s meeting – it was very positive and there are lots of ideas around.  Great community – let’s keep this impetus going!
