I’m very concerned to see the Post Office have published their unplanned branch closure letter on their website announcing our Brampton Post Office is set to close on Saturday 27 July 2024.

I know this has caused a lot of concern and worry in the community as it understandably leads to fears for the possible loss of Post Office services in Brampton.

I have now taken the step of writing to the Chief Executive at the Post Office urging them to find a new location to continue to provide their services. With the expected closure of our current branch at the end of this month, I’m also pressing the Post Office to secure a new base as soon as possible to ensure the least possible disruption for their vital services in Brampton.

I note the Post Office’s branch closure letter does say they are investigating options to enable them to reinstate their services in our community. I’m determined to work with the Post Office to support any efforts to secure a new base in Brampton, especially for all those in our community who rely on and need these services.

Alongside our local councillors in Brampton – Rajmund Brent, Denise Lelliott and John Williams – we’re clear that our community needs a Post Office service.
