Organisers estimate more than 100 people joined the protest
Villagers in Kinross-shire have taken to the streets in an effort to save their local post office.
Kinnesswood is one of several branches across the UK earmarked for closure - the plan is to replace it with a five-hours a week mobile service.
A protest has been held and organisers estimated that more than 100 people turned up.
Locals have also been sending parcels to the Postal Affairs Minister urging him to save the office.
Sub-postmaster Dave Buchan said: "For well over 100 years my family has run the post office out of this building. My great-grandfather David Sharp used to take his trap down to the train depot in Mawcarse to pick up the mail and bring it back to Kinnesswood.
"If we close down our post office the viability of the shop will be in question, and after losing the post office and shop in Scotlandwell, we're all that's left.
"Without the village shop, this community would lose its 'centre', which is its identity. This government isn't doing itself any favours."
More than 400 people signed a petition and sent letters to Post Office Ltd urging them to keep the local branch opened.
It is also estimated that 50 or more boxes were sent to Postal Affairs Minister Pat McFadden.
Chairwoman of Portmoak Community Council Wendy MacPhedran said: "I assume that at this point and over the past few days the incoming postal section of the Westminster Parliament is very busy scanning these boxes to make sure there's nothing sinister in them and passing them on to Pat McFadden.
"Now, whether that'll have an impact or not we don't know, but it's a marvellous community and these people get involved.
"If they want something to happen they get involved and they do something."
