Cotswolds MP Geoffrey Clifton-Brown today spoke with representatives from Post Office Ltd and received the final details of which branches are going to be affected by their closure programme.

The exact details are under embargo until Tuesday 5th February, when the public consultation begins. However, Mr Clifton-Brown commented “Residents of the Cotswolds have been deeply concerned for some time about this matter. Following the news I have received today I am appalled at the decisions taken by Post Office Ltd, our region has been the hardest hit across all of Gloucestershire”

“I have demonstrated on numerous occasions my commitment to fighting to protect rural services, and as a community we now have another battle on our hands”

Mr Clifton-Brown will be organising a series of public meetings in the affected parishes on the Friday 8th and Saturday 9th February, details of which will be released on Tuesday 5th February through all local news sources.
