Post Office Ltd have announced plans to close Kendal's post office and move it into the WHSmith store further up Stricklandgate.
Local MP Tim Farron says “This is devasting news for Kendal. Given the much smaller size of the WHSmith store, it’s hard to see how this won’t be a serious downgrade to the services available to local people.
“We demand better for local residents. Having lost many rural post office branches over the last 20 years, the one service we could reasonably have expected to be safe is our area’s main post office.
“That’s why I am launching a campaign to save Kendal Post Office. We have shown when we stand together as a community we can save local services – and we now need to stand together as a community again.”
SIGN THE PETITION TODAY
I/we the undersigned call on Post Office Ltd to scrap plans to close Kendal's post office and relocate it into the WHSmith store.
