Plaque unveiled at popular Welwyn Garden City post office

A PERMANENT plaque commemorating the closure of a popular post office has been unveiled today (Friday).

The plaque has been erected at the site of the former Handside post office in Marsden Lane, WGC, as a reminder of Post Office Ltd’s “atrocious” decision to close the branch last November.

It was unveiled by former Tory borough councillor Dr Dennis Lewis, who founded a council of war, along with ward councillors and others, to fight the closure of the branch.

He was joined by former postmaster Richard Edlin and other members of his war cabinet, including Lib Dem borough council leader Tony Skottowe.

Remembering the post office, Dr Lewis told the Welwyn Hatfield Times that it was a “tremendous facility for the local community”.
