Putting the spade aside for a second, I have to report that the combined wisdom of the Post Office has decided to close the post office in our fair village.
Now, you may say that no one uses the post office any more. However, there are enough people in Buckland Brewer who do so that this is a big deal. As usual, it is the vulnerable who suffer.
Also, the village shop relies on the post office for its viability. As goes the post office, so goes the shop. So goes the shop, so (likely) goes the village.
Those that care about these things (including me) will be campaigning to Save Buckland Brewer post office or at least mitigate the damage it will do to the community.
