The public are herded down a narrow passageway (degrading) especially in the winter (coughs and sneezes) or when it is raining, crowd in when busy, this is environmentally bad for the users of this so called town post office.

And they have to walk out through the shop to the benefit of Martins, when the former very good Post Office is still there in White Lion Square, and has never been used for approximately the last 10 years.

WGC still has its original post office in use at Howardsgate (why the difference? well one's a posh town, hardly a city, and Hatfield is a slum town) and the council couldn't care less. I say build a good town and the shops will come. Another interesting point is that the 'Martin Company' has the monopoly of shop/Post Offices in Hatfield town centre, The Quadrant, St Albans and Moors Walk, WGC.

Mr R.E.Tyler, Brain Close,

Hatfield.
