Closure of Greenhill Post Office

GreenhillPostOffice.jpegI am outraged at the temporary closure of Greenhill Post Office, which closed without any notice recently.

I have written to the Post Office Limited demanding the service is reinstated as soon as physically possible, or at least a temporary alternative offered in the mean time.

Greenhill Post Office is a vital part of the community and provides essential services for many. Its closure is extremely disappointing and I will be campaigning extremely hard for the reinstatement of our Post Office.

Residents are being advised to use the Post Office on Meadow Lane instead, but I believe this is not within walking distance for many elderly and disabled residents.

Response from post office:

Dear Councillor Clarke

Greenhill Post Office® Cropston Drive, Coalville, LE67 4HT

Thank you for your email of 19 July 2014 regarding the temporary closure of Greenhill Post Office.
We do understand the impact that the closure of a Post Office service may have on the local community and can only apologise to those affected by this temporary closure. We do not underestimate the difficulties faced by the more vulnerable members of the community in travelling to the alternative branches. I can assure our customers in Greenhill that Post Office Ltd are committed to operating a service in this area and are doing all we can to reinstate the service to the community. I regret that I am unable to provide any further information at this time, but we will ensure that our customers and other interested parties are advised of developments as soon as we are in a position to do so.

Thank you for taking the time to write to us.
