Jo Swinson and Cllr Margaret McNaughton are campaigning to Save Auchinairn Post Office
Today Jo Swinson will send her report on keeping Auchinairn Post Office open to the Post Office, in time for their consultation deadline of Monday 17 May. Since the closure proposals were announced 6 weeks ago, Jo has been busy gathering comments and information from local people who will be affected by the closure. This has been collated into a 2 page report which will be accompanied by the original letters and comment slips sent to Jo.
Jo said, “Thanks to everyone who has responded to the Save the Post Office leaflets, I have been able to put together a strong case for keeping Auchinairn Post Office open. Let’s hope the Post Office will listen to the arguments and reconsider their plans to close the Auchinairn PO.”
Jo explained the key arguments in her report, “Many people would have problems accessing the alternative Post Offices due to steep hills and lack of bus services, and these were the concerns that kept coming up in the letters people sent to me. Elderly and disabled people would be at a particular disadvantage. These are important factors which the Post Office should take into account.”
