Meetings over post office plans

Five public meetings are being held across south Shropshire to discuss threats to postal services.

Sixteen post office branches have been earmarked to close in the county.

The meetings on Friday, chaired by Conservative MP for Ludlow, Philip Dunne, were to include representatives from Post Office Ltd and Postwatch.

Mr Dunne said he was determined that those responsible for making closure decisions within Post Office Ltd would hear from communities.

Meetings were organised at St Peter's Hall, Ludlow, Craven Arms Community Centre, Lydbury North Village Hall, Worthen Village Hall and Worfield Recreation Rooms.
