Today, the main Post Office branch on Bath Street in Leamington’s Old Town re-opened following months of being closed.
The branch had also previously closed last summer.
Warwick and Leamington MP has been campaigning for the branch to re-open, in which he wrote to the Post Office and the Government respectively. At the time, he was pushing for a temporary provision whilst the original issue was being resolved, calling access to Post Office services “vital” for many in the community.
Responding to today’s news, Matt said: “I’m pleased to see the Post Office on Bath Street re-opened today.
However, I remain disappointed by the length of time it has taken for the issues to be resolved – it was simply too long for a community to not have easy access to the Post Office’s vital services.
This case among others has shown that public services are too important to be left to private enterprise. Going forward, I will be making the case in Parliament to bring back public scrutiny over Post Office services in our communities.”
