An open letter to the residents of the Handside area and all the customers of the Handside post office

SIR - This is a statement of intent from the chairman of the "Council of War" Dr Dennis Lewis, and the manager of Handside Post Office, Richard Edlin.

We promise that we will not allow the closure of the post office to go ahead without fighting to the last possible moment with all the resources at our disposal.

The decision to close our post office was made by Post Office Ltd without proper and effective consultation with the local people; they ignored our views and it was based on inaccurate information from their own survey.
