We in the south-east are being threatened with Post Office closures because of all the money they are losing (i.e the number of Govt/quasi- Govt franchises that have been taken away from them)....
Fair enough if that is the case, yet at this same time we are also being plagued with what must be very costly (i.e. they feature lots of celebrities) Post Office TV adverts extolling the virtues of services like "special delivery". But why do they need to advertise a service over which they hold a monopoly?
No amount of advertising, it seems to me, will make me a more frequent user the Post Office.
In and outs of it Village life is dieing they are becoming dormitory’s for city workers and the locals still stuck there (My Mum included) must travel to the nearest town for basic supplies. When will it be seen that when we used to have local shops, local delivery men, Milkmen etc there was always people about making it more secure, Basically every body new every body in the village. There is more to village life than making money but that is my dream of a England past.
