COMMUNITY ON THE MARCH TO SAVE ITS POST OFFICE

This Saturday, 20th September, sees the first of two events organised to give the people of Bengeworth, Evesham, the opportunity to voice their outrage at the proposed closure of their post office.

A march and rally will be held, beginning at 2pm, going from the “The Talbot” in Port Street to Evesham High Street.

Next Friday, 26th September, a public meeting will be held at 6pm in the Avon Suite at the Northwick Hotel, Bengeworth. Representatives of Post Office Ltd will be there and the meeting will be addressed by local civic leaders including MP Peter Luff.

Commenting, Peter said,

“The community has risen in outrage at the proposed closure. I have received hundreds of letters, posters are on display in almost every shop in Bengeworth – and the poster and leaflets have even been translated into Polish. A conventional petition and an on-line version have been started and there is at least one Facebook blog where people can express support.

“This week Postman Pat gave his support in a public event at the Post Office and at Saturday’s rally at least one other colourful cartoon character is expected to enliven proceedings.

“The community is determined to save a busy and important post office and I hope the whole town will literally rally behind them on Saturday afternoon.”
