Lib Dems fight threat to close Lewes Post Office
The Post Office in Lewes is now being put forward for private franchise and if no franchisee is found to take it on, there is a danger it could close.
Local Lib Dems have asked for an urgent meeting with the Post Office to discuss the plans. Liberal Democrats are very keen to ensure that Lewes does not lose its post office and that there is no loss of services.
Local Campaigner James Maccleary said:
“The Lib Dems are concerned about the Post Office plans for Lewes. I have asked the Post Office for an urgent meeting to discuss their proposals. I will make it clear to them that we must keep the local post office open. I also expect them to provide the same services as now, with the same or better opening hours.
Lewes Bridge County Councillor Rosalyn St Pierre added: “The Liberal Democrats are calling on the post office to ensure we do not lose the post office in Lewes, which provides very important services to local people.”
Local Liberal Democrats have launched a petition to save the post office, which can be found at www.leweslibdems.org.uk/post_office
