Richard Benyon responds to Newbury Post Office proposal

Newbury’s MP is encouraging people to respond to the six-week consultation on proposals to move Post Office counter services from its Cheap Street premises to WH Smith in Northbrook Street.

Richard Benyon commented, ‘This is a move that will affect many people and businesses in Newbury and I want to ensure that their views heard. Key points are how easy will it be to get to by public transport and whether the new location within WH Smith will be accessible.

‘People can respond via the website postofficeviews.co.uk or by email comments@postoffice.co.uk or send a letter to FREEPOST Your Comments. The consultation closes on 2nd November and I would encourage as many people as possible to take part.’
