Post Offices

The Government is undertaking another round of post office closures, with one fifth of the post offices due to be closed.

There are 13 post offices in Bath, that would mean 2/3 more to be closed. The official announcement will be made on 26th of February.

In the meantime Bath Lib Dems have set up an on line petition:

We believe that our local post offices play a vital role in our community. Whether you are collecting a pension, applying for a passport or just buying some stamps, our post offices are there for us.

The last Conservative Government closed 3500 post offices. Labour have already shut
4000 more. These new cuts will decimate the remaining network. More post offices are needed not less.
