Local MP Alex Cunningham today sought assurances that the closure of a vital local community Post Office in his constituency will be temporary and short-lived.
High Clarence Post Office in Stockton North will be closing temporarily on the 28th October 2010.
Alex has written to the Post Office to ask for more details of the closure and to seek a reassurance that the Post Office will re-open as soon as possible. Reacting to the news, Alex said:
“I was disappointed when I heard that High Clarence Post Office is to close. This is a critical service used by local people in an isolated community. Vulnerable people, particularly the elderly, will suffer if their local Post Office is not open for business.
I have written to the Post Office asking for an assurance that this closure really is only temporary and am hopeful that the Post Office will re-open as soon as possible.”
