The Post Office have announced the results of their "consultation" about closing 29 post offices in the Greater Bristol area. Surprise, surprise - all 29 will be shut!
In our area this means Tesco Express Station Road and Old Sodbury. So people will be travelling to post offices a long way away, and standing in the long queues at Yate Post Office.
Steve Webb told the Gazette "The depressing thing about the whole consultation process was that we always knew that if we got the post office to change their mind about one of the offices on their list they would simply substitute another one.
"As soon as the government decided that 2,500 offices had to go, the die was cast."Which ones will go on the next round, we wonder? How long before they want to shut Chipping Sodbury, or Abbotswood, or North Road?
