Cllr Michael Hoy has received a letter from the Post Office saying the Hullbridge Post Office, at Budgens in Ferry Road, is to be closed from 17 October 2012. This comes just a year after the village Sub Post Office was closed and a years trial begun of the new style Post Office at Budgens with a reduced service.
Please make comments to the Post Office, the details are provided in the letter. Remember it is the Post Office who closed the Sub Post Office at One Stop last year and who have failed in providing a long-term replacement.
Michael has spoken with the owner of Budgens about this. The owner said he asked the Post Office for a few changes to the way the scheme operated to make it more economically viable, but the Post Office refused any flexibility in the running of it.
As I understand some people cannot access the letter you can call the Post Office on 08457 223344 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org
