MP meeting to discuss post office changes

EAST Worthing and Shoreham MP Tim Loughton has spoken of his concerns about the possible closure of the post office in Lyndhurst Road.

He met Councillor Keith Bickers and the regional manager of the Post Office Martine Munby last Friday to discuss plans to change the branch to a Post Office Local. They were assured that there is no intention to close the branch.

Mr Loughton said: “Having lost so many local post office branches it is absolutely essential that we protect the remaining service and that is why we responded so quickly to allay concerns and make sure the Post Office is not doing anything that could lead to further downgrading of branches in Worthing.

“I am confident that this is not the Post Office’s intention but they need to do much more to keep local people in the loop.”
