Post office closure date revealed
The Post Office has confirmed when another branch in Coventry will close.

The Winsford Avenue facility, one of 12 in the Coventry and Rugby area which are shutting down, will close on 2 September.

The Post Office has said nine branches in Coventry and three in Rugby are going partly because people are not using them enough.

Local residents have complained that the closures will have a devastating impact both on them and businesses.

In April the Post Office said it was considering shutting down 14 branches in the area.

After six weeks consultation, it was confirmed last month that 10 would go - seven in Coventry and three in Rugby - with decisions yet to be made on a further four.

Nearly two weeks later the Post Office announced that the Winsford Avenue branch in Allesley Park and Acorn Street in Stoke Aldermoor, Coventry, would also close.
