Following the resignation of the Postmaster, Buckstone Post Office closed ‘temporarily’ on 28th February.
I know how valued this service is to the community in Buckstone and Fairmilehead. The nearest Post Offices in Morningside and Colinton are simply too far away, especially for older residents.
Letter from Post Office Ltd:
I have already written to residents informing them of the news. I will also be writing to the Post Office and the Post Office Minister to pressure them to find a suitable operator as quickly as possible.
Buckstone Post Office became the 3rd Post Office in my constituency to close in the last few months. This is simply unacceptable and the Post Office must do more to ensure operators are found in Buckstone and the Inch.
I have written to the Post Office Minister and Post Office Ltd to call for urgent action.
