From the North Devon Gazette:

On Torridgeside, hundreds of local residents turned out to pledge support for Buckland Brewer Post Office, threatened with closure just 20 months after it was set up with the aid of a £27,000 grant. Lib Dem PPC and Torridge councillor Adam Symons, who chaired the meeting, said: “What was quite clear … is that the Post Office Ltd. does not understand the importance of Buckland Brewer Post Office to both residents and local businesses and that they have not taken into account lack of public transport, deprivation rates and access to other post offices.”

I will have more cuttings over the next few days and I will start to think through the issues that need to be covered by submissions.

At this evening’s parish council meeting, it was proposed and agreed that information from the draft parish plan, showing how the village is growing, should be sent to the Post Office as support for retaining our post office.
