A community is more than just a collection of customers - save Leigh post office

I think Post Offices are important. I think this for a number of reasons.

The most obvious is the services they provide. Whilst some of what they offer is available elsewhere, the local post office is still the go-to place for so many things.

The post office is trusted in ways that make them the envy of many businesses. You can trust your local post office.

Service is a word that comes to mind when I think of post offices. An unhurried and genuine service, so often absent in other places.

Whilst mergers may make business sense, depriving a community of its post office diminishes that community, much like closing a library, or public convenience. A community is more than just a collection of customers.
