AMBER Rudd tells us that Hastings Post Office is not closing, rather that it is moving to WH Smith in Priory Meadow.
Although Amber’s office is just across the road from the Post Office, she clearly hasn’t used it... why would she with Parliamentary post?
As one of the businesses which share that office space however, I frequently use the post office. It is often busy, whatever time of day I call in. I’ve nothing against WH Smith, but so far as its Priory Meadow shop goes, there is barely room for WH Smith, let alone a post office that expects to serve and town of more than 90,000 people and its businesses.
I’m sorry, WH Smith is not the solution.
